I love Jalapeno Popper anything: Jalapeno Popper Potato Salad, Jalapeno Popper Pasta Salad, Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs. You just can’t go wrong with jalapenos!

I used mayonnaise and cream cheese for the base of this chicken salad.  Trust me. Chicken salad tastes so rich and good with cream cheese mixed in.

I like to primarily use pickled jalapeno peppers for this recipe. I also chop up a fresh jalapeno pepper and add it in for double the jalapeno flavor. For even more flavor, I add a little juice from the jar of pickled jalapenos.

  1. This recipe gives a result that is startlingly, freakishly delicious. I just didn’t aticipate how good it would taste. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Christin, this looks like it is going to be awesome. I was just getting ready to make this… the written recipe says 4oz of cream cheese, but your video seems to be using the whole 8oz for, what looks like the rest of the ingredients as written. Is it a typo?
