  • 12 Frozen Jalapeno Poppers


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 350F / 180C.
  • Place frozen Jalapeno poppers in a single layer inside the air fryer basket.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes until they are golden and the cheese is melted.


  • Check your manual to see if you should preheat your air fryer. Not all models recommend this step. 
  • Place the frozen poppers in a single layer with a bit of space between each so the air can circulate. 
  • If necessary, cook the poppers in batches.
  • Give the jalapeno poppers a shake halfway through cooking. 
  • Watch the poppers closely, so the cheese doesn’t ooze out of them. Adjust cooking time accordingly. 
  • Storage - keep leftovers in an airtight container inside the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • There are 9 WW Blue Plan SmartPoints in a serving of this.
