Vegan Super Bowl Recipes: Easy Jalapeño Poppers

These poppers were a happy accident I stumbled upon one day a few months ago. As I began putting together my vegan Super Bowl menu, I remembered how incredibly easy and tasty these were and decided it was the perfect time to share them! Many vegan popper recipes on the internet are filled with high-fat ingredients, breading, and more. These poppers are a lighter version made with hummus and topped with crushed tortilla chips!
