Jalapeno Popper Chicken Wraps

Jump to Recipe

Wraps are so good for combining different flavor profiles because you can mash it all together to really taste it all. Chicken is a great protein to carry the flavors of jalapeno, and cream cheese that you expect from Jalapeno Poppers. Adding in the bacon, ranch and cheddar cheese make from a delicious and easy meal. These are really great for a quick meal when people are in out at dinner time – as they are good warm and still good cold!

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Wraps

I removed about half the seeds and ribs (the pithy white stuff that holds the seeds) before adding them to the chicken meatballs. You could leave them in for more heat or take more out to lessen the impact. Truthfully, these meatballs really are not very spicy at all. It’s more about the flavor of the peppers coming together.

I used my Homemade Ranch for these wraps. It’s made with Greek Yogurt, chives and dill to get all those tangy ranch flavors. The ranch recipe is great for dips and salads too. If you want it a little thicker, you can reduce the heavy cream. If you want it thinner, just increase the amount of heavy cream. If you don’t have the time, or just prefer the bottle – that will totally work for this recipe.

Now Let’s Get Cookin’!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
