Jalapeno Cheese Crisps

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

Jalapeno Cheese Crisps

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.

Ingredients

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or monterey jack

12 slices jalapeno or banana pepper fresh or jarred

Instructions

Place 12 pinches of cheese on parchment paper covered baking sheet and put one (or more if you like it really spicy!) slice of pepper on each pile.

Cover with just a little more cheese.

Bake in preheated 350* oven for 10-12 minutes.

Let cool some to firm up before removing from a pan to a serving plate.

Notes

The nutrition app came up with one net carb per piece but it counts basic shredded cheese.

You can save a lot of carbs by using good cheese and shredding your own.

  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.
