These jalapeño poppers have all the creamy, savory goodness that has made them an addictive crowd-pleaser for game day, parties, and cocktail hour, but with the added crunch that comes from crumbled nacho-flavored tortilla chips. The crunchy crumbs add another dimension of flavor and a welcome contrast of crisp texture with every bite. Pass these around while they are still warm from the oven, though it's more likely you will be followed around, so jut go ahead, stand still, and let your guests come to you.
