Deeli's Jalapeno Poppers

I simply love jalapenos and cheese ;-)


  • 2 quarts vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cups beer (not dark)
  • Ad
  • 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


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.
