Recipe: Deeli's Jalapeno Poppers

I simply love jalapenos and cheese ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 2 quarts vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cups beer (not dark)
  • 12 medium to large fresh jalapeno peppers, cut lengthwise (keep stem intact) and seeds removed
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 to 2 cups sour cream
  • clean dish towel or paper towels

Directions:

In deep fryer or medium/large pot, heat oil to 400 degrees F.

In small bowl, combine flour, beer, salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine and set aside.

In a small microwave safe bowl, combine cream cheese and cheddar cheese, and place in microwave to melt. Stir accordingly during this process.

Stuff each jalapeno pepper with as much of the cheese mixture as possible.

Working in batches, dip jalapenos into batter, coating completely and fry until golden brown. About four to five minutes.

Remove from oil and place on paper towels or dish towel to drain.

Serve immediately with sour cream.

Note: The vegetable oil will keep for up to two more cooking usages if stored properly. Strain through cheesecloth if necessary.

Recipe: Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

Can you guys tell I like Jalapenos? ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 10 medium jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise, seeds and stems removed
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 10 bacon strips, halved width wise

Directions:

Mix cream cheese and cheddar cheese in a small bowl.

Stuff each jalapeno half equally with the cheese mixture.

Wrap with bacon and secure with toothpicks.

Place on a large baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 to 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

Recipe: Heat-Wave Jalapeno Poppers

Don't be afraid to try these. They're fun and tasty.

Ingredients:

  • jalapeno peppers (12 to 15, depending on size)
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
  • 1 (8 oz.) package shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • oil for frying

Directions:

Wash, halve, and seed the jalapenos. (Wear gloves to protect your hands.) For the filling, mix cream cheese with the shredded cheddar cheese. Stuff the pepper halves with the filling.

In a small bowl, combine egg and milk. Put flour in a second bowl. Dip the stuffed peppers in the milk mixture, then in the flour. Lay them on a wax-paper-lined tray to dry for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Put dry bread crumbs in a bowl. Dip the peppers in the milk/egg wash again, then in the bread crumbs. Let them dry for another 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat the last step one more time, then deep-fry in hot oil (365 to 375 degrees F) for about 3 to 4 minutes each, or until they're browned the way you like them. Drain on paper towels.

Makes: 24 to 30 Poppets

Note: Jalapenos are hard to coat, plus they are stuffed, so they really need the triple coating. This also works well for other fried veggies instead of plain bread crumbs.

Question: Jalapeno Popper Recipe

Has anyone used canned, sliced Jalapenos to make poppers, using cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon bits then deep frying them? Do you have another suggestion? I am a beginner at this, please help. Thanks.

I just submitted this recipe this morning for the recipe contest and hope it will be posted :-) It's not with canned sliced jalapenos but you could chop them and add them to the cheese filling and use serano chiles as the shell instead :-) Anyway, it's my own take on it from experimenting over the years and it's so simple and yummy :-) Let me know if you try it and like it :-)
