Having them on hand for a quick snack on game day or appetizer to go along with your favorite meal is ideal. Freezing jalapeno poppers is simple, just remember to store them in a single layer to prevent the breadcrumb coating from cracking and falling away from the pepper.

Step 2

Place the stuffed and breaded jalapenos on a cookie sheet and place the cookie sheet in the freezer. Freeze the jalapenos until they are hard to the touch. The freezing process can take up to 2 hours.


Step 3

Place the jalapenos in a single layer in freezer containers. Keeping the jalapenos in a single layer will prevent the breading from cracking and separating from the jalapeno. Jalapenos can be stored in the freezer for up to 4 months or longer if the container is air tight.

Step 4

Remove the jalapenos from the freezer when ready to eat, place them on a cookie sheet and into a preheated oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit. Bake for approximately 22 minutes or until golden brown and heated all the way through.
