Popperbelly #Recipe

When I was a kid, we would go to the Greentree Festival in Kirkwood.One of my favorite food booths was always the one that made the pepper bellies.

You slice open a bag of Fritos. Pour in some chili, sprinkle some cheese and add some onions, sour cream and jalapeños to top it off. It’s perfect for a chilly fall day.

At home, I make frito pie. The same, but usually don’t have jalapeños or sour cream stocked.

Today, I went to make a frito pie for the family for a football snack and thought hey, I have jalapeño poppers in the freezer. Let’s pop those in the airfryer and eat those, too! Hubby liked the idea but asked if I could cut up the poppers and put it on the Frito Pie. I thought that was a fantastic idea! So that’s how we came up with a Popperbelly.

This was absolutely perfect! The poppers added a creaminess and a little kick.


Cheese (shredded or Velveeta)
Frozen Jalapeño Poppers

Black olives
Sour Cream

Directions :
Cook your frozen jalapeño poppers to your liking. Cut into fourths. (I do an airfryer at 350 for 7-8 minutes)

Heat up some chili (microwave or stove top)

Crush up some Fritos and add to the bottom of your bowl.

Add hot chili

Then cheese
A couple of Fritos for crunch

Add onions, black olives, sour cream (optional)
