Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces Cheddar cheese Grated
  • 1 Jalapeño pepper Thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a rimmed half sheet pan with a silpat or parchment paper.

    For small crackers, divide the cheese into 1 tablespoon mounds of cheese, leaving at least 3 inches between the mounds, adding 1 slice of jalapeño on top of each one. 

    For medium crackers, divide the cheese into 2 tablespoon mounds of cheese, leaving at least 3 inches between the mounds, adding 1 to 2 slices of jalapeño on top of each one.

    For large crackers, divide the cheese into 3 tablespoon mounds of cheese, leaving at least 3 inches between the mounds, adding 1 to 2 slices of jalapeño on top of each one.

    Bake for 8 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted, bubbled, and turned a uniform deep golden brown. The oil will be bubbling around the cheese and the cracker will be set, but pliable. Remove the pan from the oven and let rest for 3 minutes before transferring the crisps to a paper towel lined plate to finish cooling and crisping up. 

    Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature. If they become stale, you can re-crisp them in a 375F oven for 3 minutes.
