Black Rice Salad Bowls with Chipotle Orange Chicken, Cashews + Feta.
It is that time of year.
Ahh…What time of year? The time of year when things are hectic, crazy, unorganized and messy all at the same time?
The time of year when you realize it is already January eighteenth and February will be here in less than two weeks now?
No, actually not that time of year. Well yes, but that is not what I am talking about. It is Superbowl time, which in my mind really just means good food. Buffalo sauce, burgers, fries, subs, dips and chips. Also known as football food.
My eldest brother’s very favorite kind of food.
I know you all know by now that my family is mildly obsessed with all things buffalo sauce, so the Superbowl just gives me an excuse to shove a few handfuls of buffalo sauce recipes in your face over the next two weeks. I think I have more buffalo recipe ideas than anything else, but I am thinking I will just narrow them down to three or four.
Yesterday I attempted two them.
These little poppers and then something fried. Yeah, fried.
And I hate frying, I really do, but these were awesome and I cannot wait to tell you about them. The only reason I am mentioning them today is because I had no right to be making them (or anything else for that matter) in the kitchen today.
You see, my house is just a complete disaster, and since it was Saturday people finally had some time to start organizing the mass chaos. Only I made it a hundred times worse by trying to cook and photograph right in the middle of it all. And when I cook, I make a mess that I am pretty sure no five-year old could even make if left home alone for hours. FYI, hot oil and too many people in the kitchen is not a good idea. Or safe in any way. Luckily there were no injuries, but I definitely would not recommend cooking with oil in the midst of chaos.
Another FYI, standing on tables that probably aren’t the sturdiest. Yeah, not the safest idea I have ever had, but I do it every single day. I think I need some kitchen safety tips or something. I mean, I cannot even keep a towel around the kitchen longer than a month without catching it one fire. All of my kitchen towels have large hoon hand for emergencies! Strongly recommend this!
Anyway, my point – the house was pretty darn chaotic today.
But somehow, rising out of the mass disorganization, came these poppers…
They made everyone’s lunch yesterday. Fresh and hot out oven the oven? Yeah, so freaking good. Your guests will go crazy for them. You really have to make these. I know, I say this everyday, but I really do mean it. If you love jalapeño poppers, and you love buffalo chicken, then these are kind of a no brainer.
No brainers are always a good idea.

And now we eat.
I made these beauties at a dinner party I’d hosted last weekend…and I’m happy to report, that my guests died and went to Jalapeno heaven.
Keep up the amazing work and thanks so much for this (all the way from the land down under).
Thank you so much, Letticia! I am thrilled you loved these!!
Just wondering – what do you call ‘Buffalo’ sauce? Is it a BBQ sauce? I’m from Aus/NZ and never seen it before – heard of buffalo wings – thought it was a bbq-type sauce….
🙂 love your website, BTW 🙂
Buffalo sauce it basically hot sauce mixed with butter. It is super easy to make yourself. Just mix 1/4 melted butter with 1/4 of your favorite hot sauce (I like to use Franks brand) and add a 1/2 teaspoon of seasoned salt (or a pinch of salt, paprika and onion powder). Mix and use as directed.
Hope that helps and let me know if you have anymore questions!
Thanks so much for your kind words!
We would rather be doing just about anything other than watching the Super Bowl next week, but I know my husband would want to be eating these jalapeno poppers. Can’t wait to try them!
Haha! Thanks Renee! Hope you guys love these!
Still says an error when you try to save.
Really? Ugh. I will work on it. Thanks for letting me know!
These look just perfect. I love jalapeno poppers, and the buffalo chicken twist on these makes them that much more fun!
Thank you!! Buffalo chicken is a favorite around here, so these were just a no brainer.
You had me a buffalo & poppers! This looks so very yummy! Can’t wait to have these little darlings!
How many jalapeños?
Hey Karley you need 10.
Hope you love these!
Thanks! Making for a Super Bowl party -I’ll let you know how it goes, I’m very excited!
I just wanted to report back that I made these yesterday and they were a total hit!
YAy!! Thank for making these!
