Jalapeno Cheese Crisps

Jalapeno Cheese Crisps are the perfect blend of cheesy and spicy!

Do you love to scrape the cheese off the griddle that leaks out when making grilled cheese sandwiches?  That crispy, chewy cheese?  I do!  Oh, that is so scrumptious!  If so, Jalapeno Cheese Crisps are for you.

These are called several things; jack snacks, jalapeno cheese crisps, crispy cheese crisps and more. They are hardly a recipe with only two ingredients but they sure are a wonderful combination and simple to make.  They are crispy, chewy and spicy; or use banana peppers for less heat.  You can use fresh peppers or jarred.

These are so easy but you do need parchment paper on your cookie sheet; they are said to not cook properly on foil,  waxed paper, or right on the cookie sheet.  I learned the hard way with a different recipe that wax paper and parchment paper are NOT the same; they are not interchangeable. I have made them several times with the parchment paper and they came out perfectly every time.  Clean up is easy too because you just throw the paper away.

Another delicious cheesy appetizer is Cheesy Crabmeat Appetizers.

  1. Did you invent this recipe??!
    They do look good.
    I think I would use sweet peppers though.

    1. No, I did not invent it. It is all around the internet as different names. They are VERY good. 🙂 Yes, if you don’t like hot, you will want sweet peppers.

    1. Hi Lisa, Honestly, I have never had to store these! They are always eaten. I would say to keep them covered in the refrigerator for up to a few days. I am sure they will lose their crispness and be more chewy.
