Jalapeño Popper Recipe
Jalapeño poppers are creamy, spicy, and fried to perfection. These stuffed peppers are a widely popular appetizer for good reason!
- 1 c milk
- 1 c all purpose flour
- 1 c dry bread crumbs
- 12 oz cream cheese softened
- 8 oz Mexican cheese shredded
- 1 strip bacon cooked and crumbled
- 12 oz jalapeno peppers halved and seeded
- 2 qt vegetable oil for frying
Grab 3 separate bowls. Add the milk to a bowl, flour to a bowl and bread crumbs into the third bowl.
In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, shredded cheese and bacon crumbles.
Place the jalapeno halves onto a plate in a single layer. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into each jalapeno half.
Coat each pepper by dipping them each in milk and then into the flour. Place back on to the plate to dry.
Dip each jalapeno again in the milk then into the bread crumb mixture. Allow them to dry and then repeat dipping them into the milk and bread crumbs.
Pour the oil in a large skillet. Turn the heat to medium. Once the oil is hot, fry the jalapenos for a few minutes turning them so they are a golden brown all over.
Place the fried jalapenos on a paper towel lined plate. Serve warm.
