12 jalapeno poppers


  • 6 medium jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded

  1. Preheat an air fryer to 390 degrees F (199 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.

  2. Fill each jalapeno half with some cream cheese and Cheddar cheese. Place 1/2 a slice of salami on top of each pepper, wrap with a piece of bacon, and secure with a toothpick, if necessary.
