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 Allrecipes.com):
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.
