“A friend introduced me to these popovers, and I enhanced the recipe a bit by adding jalapeno peppers," explains Vicki Bluemner in Collinsville, Illinois. "My family has enjoyed these for almost 18 years. Hope yours does, too.”

  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, milk, jalapenos and pepper until blended. Stir in chicken and onion.

    Freeze option: Freeze baked cooled bundles in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, reheat on an ungreased baking sheet in a preheated 350° until heated through. Meanwhile, prepare mushroom sauce as directed.
    Yield: 8 servings.

"These were good. Next time I'll add more jalapeno slices and skip the sauce, although my husband didn't mind the sauce. I just don't think it added anything to the flavor of the bundles."

"I used the entire 8oz brick but used chopped green chillies instead of jalepenos as my husband doesn't like them. They were yumy!"

"I also used the 8 oz. cream cheese...not sure how the 3 oz. would work. I LOVE this recipe, and so does my family."

"Very tasty and easy to make. I actually added a little more cream cheese than what was called for (about 4-5 oz). Still came out great. I wasn't sure if it was a mistake, but my grocer only sells 8oz pkgs of cream cheese."
