Savory Jalapeño-Cheddar Popovers feature a little kick of heat that we know you'll love. For a head start, make the popover batter a day ahead; cover and chill. Then bring to room temp before baking.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 450°. Process first 5 ingredients in a blender 15 seconds or until smooth. Stir in cheese and jalapeño, and let stand 30 minutes. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray; place in a jelly-roll pan, and heat in oven 2 minutes. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan, filling halfway. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°, and bake 8 to 12 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.

I tried these at the last-minute for a dinner with friends - they were a hit! I subbed out jalapeño, added crushed red pepper - gave it a flavor like cheese straws. Yum!

Very good and will make again. Forgot to let the batter sit for a half hour, forgot to preheat muffin tin and I opened the oven (carefully) to check on them and they still came out great!
