This recipe was created after not going to the grocery store for 2 weeks! I was down to my very last jalapeños, tomatoes and lime with nothing else but dry goods to choose from. What would I make? I find in those moments where I feel like I don't have much to work with comes the most divine creations. Inspiration at its finest. I love those moments in life when you think you have nothing and are reminded of how rich you truly are, rich with love, inspiration, happiness and joy. I was flipping through my new cookbook, which I really love cooking from, each recipe is fantastic and makes me feel good about what could be on your dinner table. I took a couple different recipes and created a new one. Jalapeño Cheese Hot Pockets!
A gluten-free, oil-free dough is rolled into 8 balls, pressed, stuffed, baked and topped for an "mmmm" yummy meal! We love it spicy so I used a whole jalapeño in the cheese but feel free to skip it or use less to suit your needs. These are so satisfying, easy to pick up and eat, I love finger foods! My husband loves them "delicious honey"... "MMMM!" on first bite, "these are so good" etc. saying it makes a wonderful lunch!
When I was growing up I loved a hot pocket! My best friend and I would grab one from the freezer, plop it in the microwave and eat it promptly after school. Now we can have our very own hot pockets in a way that makes our bodies smile! These are sooo good that we ate them ALL the first time. The second time we were able to save 3 for later. >:) I hope you love this fabulous creation from my heart and kitchen to yours! ~ Christa
For the Pockets:
Here is a picture of the process from mixing the wet to dry, kneading the dough, rolling into 8 balls, pressing in my hands, flattening out in the tortilla press, stuffing with cheese, folding over and finally pressing shut.
From there they are transferred to a greased baking sheet. So simple yet so inviting!
After they have baked for 25 minutes they'll come out with golden edges, nice and crisp all around!
Top with the remaining cheese, tomatoes and jalapeños.
Bake for 5 additional minutes and they'll come out warm and golden, ready to consume!
