Jalapeno Poppers (Frugal Food Thursday)

jalapeno poppers

Super Bowl time! That means it's time for my favorite appetizer, Jalapeno Poppers!

I make these once a year - for my yearly appetizers as dinner meal for the Super Bowl. Can't wait to make them again!  Stuffed with cheese, dipped in bread crumbs and deep-fried... they're not healthy, but they're delicious!

Here's the recipe (modified from one I found on


4 oz. cream cheese, softened
4 oz. shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
8 jalapeno peppers, seeded and halved
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup bread crumbs
oil for frying

In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and shredded cheese.  Spoon mixture into  halved jalapenos.  Put milk, flour, and bread crumbs into separate  bowls.  Dip the stuffed jalapenos into the milk, then into the flour.   Allow to dry for 10 minutes.  Dip the pepper halves into the milk again  and then into the breadcrumbs, and let dry again.

In a skillet, heat the oil and deep fry the jalapenos until golden  brown, 2 to 3 minutes each.  Remove and drain on a paper towel.

I've never made the fried poppers. That sounds delicious....even though it's not very healthy! I usually make jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese, wrapped in bacon and baked. I could eat those all day long...mmmmm......
Thanks for sharing the recipe! The next time I have a get-together, I'll have to try it!

I love Jalapeno Poppers but I have never made them at home. I really like the sound of your recipe, and that it is quick and easy as well. Thank you for sharing this post with the Gallery of Favorites.

I like to make Jalapeno Poppers when we have fresh from the garden jalapeno's! Very easy to make, and they freeze well! I like your recipe!
