Are you familiar with the classic strawberry pretzel salad?  The one made with a crushed pretzel crust, layered with a sweetened cream cheese mixture, and then strawberries and Jell-o?

It's a strange sounding combination, but believe me ... it's so good.  But when I first encountered that "salad" recipe a few years back, I must admit I was skeptical.  One bite though, and my skepticism was wiped away.

I totally think jalapeno poppers are appropriately named.  Don't you?  Because when it comes right down to it, they truly are so easy to just "pop" in your mouth.  Both because of their perfectly poppable size ... and because of their fabulous flavor.

As much as I love them, until now I've never really made my own poppers at home ... purely because I don't like to fry.  And I always thought, how can you get that characteristic crunch of a jalapeno popper's coating without frying?

But now I've discovered this BAKED Jalapeno Poppers recipe.  Which means no frying! ... yet still delivers up the popper's characteristic crunch.
