Jalapeño poppers have a history slightly more mysterious and complicated. The core ingredient — the jalapeño pepper — originated in what is now Central America and Mexico. The name jalapeño was given to the pepper by the Spanish. Jalapeño literally “from Xalapa,” which is the capital of Veracruz. Anybody who is fond of Mexican cuisine may be familiar with a dish known as chiles rellenos, which many people see as the original inspiration for jalapeño poppers.
