With the holidays right around the corner quickly whip up some of these yummy jalapeño poppers to snack on before the main course.
If your guests aren’t into spicy snacks then you can just mix up the filling, add a 15-ounce jar of mild salsa. Heat it up until the cheese melts in the microwave and you have a delicious sausage Queso for tortilla chips!
If you have guests with meat or meat preferences, change it up by using chicken or meat free sausages.
