“These were a pleasant surprise on the menu. These can be ordered as an appetizer or as a part of an appetizer tower. These are easy to make, inexpensive, and taste very different.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 26 ounces sliced jalapeno peppers (not pickled, those used for nachos)
  • 2 23 cups crackers, crumbs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 cup water
  • vegetable oil (for your favorite deep frying system)


  1. Drain jalapeño peppers and set aside. Mix cracker crumbs and flour together, blend well. In separate bowl beat eggs and add water blend well. Heat oil in fry pan, deep fryer, or fry cooker until temperature is the same degrees that you would fry French fries at. Dip slices of peppers in egg wash and then the flour and cracker crumb mixture, dust off excess dry ingredients and carefully place in hot oil.
  2. Place enough of the peppers in your deep frying system so they are not over crowded. Take care, the peppers like to pop a little. Fry until golden brown. Remove peppers and dry on a paper towel.
  3. Peppers are served with your favorite Con Queso Dip on the side.
