Tex Mex Jalapeño Popper Puff Pastry. Appetizers hotter than a honeymoon hotel.

Yeah. I’ve been living in Texas for over two years now, so it is pretty shameful I haven’t put enough effort into making more Texas-inspired recipes.

Now that I’ve settled in and gotten to know lay of the land (okay, about 1/9 of the land) I can easily tell you who does what better.

Better drivers: Texas. They may be slow and apprehensive , but there’s a lot less anger and self-hatred brewing inside. Sorry, Mass. You know we need anger management.

Better education: With over 130 colleges and universities in the Boston area, it’s kind of a given. The money and importance placed on schools is just there. In Texas, I’ve met more grown men who don’t know the difference between to and too than I did when I was in elementary school. If this makes you mad to read, have your people call my people. Come hell or high water, they won’t pass along the message.

Better food: Is this even a QUESTION?!?!? [insert angry emoticon here] Sorry Mass, but when you text the most about cod and Texas is texting about brisket… Aside from seafood, Texas does it better. It’s all about butter, meat, cream, and sugar, and it’s done with no apologies. Not to mention, they add guacamole, bacon, BBQ sauce and/or jalapeños to almost everything (hence my jalapeño popper puff pastry recipe).  I could get fat here. #thestruggleisreal

Seriously who tweets about vinegar?

..which brings us to why I decided to make this Jalapeño Popper Puff Pastry. It’s easy, and a fun Tex Mex app with all of the right ingredients.

Ingredients for Tex Mex Jalapeño Popper Puff Pastry

– 8 oz mascarpone cheese

– A couple of splashes of heavy cream

– Parmesan cheese

– Pepper

РJalape̱o peppers (some diced, some sliced)

РSmall block of Gruy̬re cheese

– Lightly cooked bacon, shredded

– 4 sheets puff pastry, either store bought or homemade

– 1 egg, lightly beaten with a fork

- Texas state cookie cutter

 

*If you notice, there are practically no units of measurement in the ingredient list for two reasons:

1. You should be mixing the cream spread to your preferred taste. Some people like a lot of pepper, others want a lot of spice. Those who don’t like spicy may add more shredded bacon. You can’t mess it up unless you add waaay too much of one ingredient.

2. It’s meant to be EASY. Just mix together to taste and spread it on the pastry. It should work so long as you don’t do anything too extreme.

* Although I always recommend using homemade pastry sheets, you can obviously use a pre-made version from the grocery store to save time. Otherwise, make your puff pastry dough on a rainy day and freeze it in freezer for quick access when you need to make these puppies.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

To being making your jalapeño puff pastry, mix diced jalapeño,  pepper, and fresh parmesan into mascarpone cheese. Add a splash of cream, and shredded parmesan cheese. and mix with a KitchenAid hand blender  in a deep bowl. You can use a spatula, but that takes a lot more work.

Unfold puff pastry and roll with pin lightly to secure edges. Cut pieces with a cookie cutter. I used a Texas-shaped cookie cutter , duh. Use a fork to poke holes in pastry shapes.

Spread mascarpone onto each pastry, leaving space around the borders. Press some slices of Gruyère on top, sprinkle bacon, and a slice of jalapeño on top. If you like bacon and  jalapeños like me, sprinkle even more.  Fat and sassy. Just be careful not to pile on too high, or most of the toppings will end up on your baking sheet.

With a pastry brush, cover edges with egg wash.

Place jalapeño puff pastry on a parchment-lined baking sheet for about 35 minutes or more, or until golden brown. and puff pastry is crispy on edges. Check the center of one pastry to make sure the middle is cooked throughout.

Note: Try to keep pastry sheets cold and firm. Place in refrigerator when making other ingredients for the recipe.

I like to pile them up and eat ’em at once. Everything’s bigger in Texas.

If you like cream cheese, feel free to take out half the mascarpone and mix in some of that. I just add more cheese. Yeehaw, bitches.
