Jalapeno Poppers

User Rating 3 Star Rating (1 Review)


Jalapeno peppers are stuffed with a cream cheese mixture then battered and deep fried to make delicious little appetizers.


  • 15 jalapeno peppers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • dash salt
  • 1 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • oil for deep frying


Slice jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds. Combine the cream cheese and Cheddar, mixing until well blended. Fill the jalapeno pepper halves with cream cheese mixture and press halves back together.

Put milk in a shallow bowl.

Combine the salt and flour in a shallow bowl.

Put bread crumbs in a shallow bowl.

Dip the peppers in the milk, then in the flour, coating thoroughly. Set them on a sheet of foil or waxed paper to dry for about 15 minutes.

Dip the peppers in the milk again, then in the bread crumbs. Let them dry again for 10 to 15 minutes. If necessary, dip again lightly in the milk and again in the bread crumbs and let dry again.

Meanwhile, heat oil in deep fryer to 370°. Deep fry peppers in batches for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer jalapeno poppers to paper towels to drain.

Caution, Member cfaskesenn2011

These were delicious, if time intensive 2 1/2 hrs for a double batch. I actually got about 52 poppers (26x2). But please..don't do this without gloves (the cheap throw away ones from the drug store are ok). I didn't and I felt like I'd had the worst burn in my life for hours and hours..tried every remedy..nothing worked for the pain but cold running water.. finally went to bed with a hot water bottle filled with ice cubes and got some sleep. Hands still sensitive the next day. Jalopenos can make you hands burn up to 24 hours so don't make my mistake.
