“Credit for this recipe goes to www.allrecipes.com My husband has been requesting jalapeno poppers for awhile but I was hesitant because I hadn't tried deep frying anything other than onion rings and potatoes before. These turned out really good.”
READY IN:
55mins
YIELD:
10 poppers
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon bacon bits
  • 12 ounces jalapeno peppers, seeded and halved (we used 5 large)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup fine dry white bread crumbs
  • 2 quarts frying oil

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Spoon this mixture into the jalapeno pepper halves.
  2. Put the milk and flour into two separate small bowls. Dip the stuffed jalapenos first into the milk then into the flour, making sure they are well coated with each. Allow the coated jalapenos to dry for about 10 minutes.
  3. Dip the jalapenos in milk again and roll them through the breadcrumbs. Allow them to dry, then repeat to ensure the entire surface of the jalapeno is coated.
  4. In a medium skillet, heat the oil to 365 degrees F ( 180 degrees C). Deep fry the coated jalapenos 2 to 3 minutes each, until golden brown. Remove and let drain on a paper towel.
