Jalapeno Popper Pigs In A Blanket: A Delightful Appetizer That Combines Two Beloved Snacks Into One

The ultimate blend of jalapeno poppers and pigs in a blanket. A sure crowd-pleaser!

Here’s a succinct version of the recipe:

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 32
Calories: 102kcal per serving


  • 14 oz Lit’l Smokies, drained and patted dry
  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 4.5 oz can green chilies, drained
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Preparation: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Roll Prep: Unroll the crescent rolls and separate the triangles. Using a pizza cutter, cut each triangle in half lengthwise and then again horizontally. This should give you 4 pieces from each triangle, totaling 32 pieces. Set these aside.
  3. Filling: In a mixing bowl, whip the cream cheese until smooth. Incorporate the crumbled bacon, green chilies, shredded cheddar cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Mix until everything is well-combined.
  4. Assembly: Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture on each crescent roll piece. Place a Lit’l Smokie on the widest end of the piece and roll it up.
  5. Baking: Place the assembled pigs in a blanket on the prepared baking sheet, ensuring the seam side is facing down. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they’re a beautiful golden brown color.
  6. Serve: Serve warm and enjoy!


  • Perfect for gatherings or parties.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, you can substitute fresh jalapenos for the canned green chilies.
  • These can be prepared up to 2 days ahead. Simply wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate, then bake when ready.
