Ingredients to Summon Your Jalapeño Popper Mummies

Let’s gather our ingredients. It’s like casting a spell, but with delicious food.

You’ll need fresh jalapeno peppers, Spiceology’s Guac and Roll seasoning, cream cheese, and the always delicious Cabot Cheese Snack Sticks (any of them will work). You’ll also need apricot preserves, pepper flakes and garlic powder so we can make the apricot dipping sauce.

Everything has to have a condiment.

Yield: 20 Jalapeno Popper Mummies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

A spooktacular take on jalapeno poppers, with a spicy-sweet dipping sauce.


For the Mummies

For the Ghastly Dipping Sauce

  • 2 cups Ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde
  • 1 bunch fresh Cilantro
  • 1/2 lime, squeezed


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will keep our mummies from sticking to their afterlife bed.
  2. Cut each jalapeño in half lengthwise, and don't forget to wear some kitchen gloves unless you want to experience the fiery wrath of jalapeño fingers later. Scoop out the seeds and membranes to tame the heat a bit.
  3. Combine cream cheese with Guac and Roll Seasoning.
  4. Coat the mozzarella sticks with cream cheese. Now, they're ready to be our little mummy souls.
  5. Place each cream cheese-covered mozzarella stick inside a jalapeño half, like a snug little mummy coffin.
  6. Cut your crescent quarters in strips and wrap them around each jalapeño, crisscrossing to create that mummy look. Leave a little space at the top for the eyes.
  7. Sprinkle more Guac and Roll over your mummified peppers, making them look extra crispy and delightful.
  8. Place your mummies on the prepared baking sheet and slide them into the preheated oven. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the crescent dough is slightly brown and the jalapeños are tender.
  9. To make the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients in a food processor, adding more of each ingredient if needed as you taste.
