Jalapeno Poppers #3

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Appetizers

 Ingredients List

  • Jalapeno chiles
  • Cream cheese
  • Milk
  • Flour
  • Batter


Last night I made another attack on the poppers recipe, this time worked
towards a batter. I used one egg, enough bread crumbs to thicken it,
enough milk to thin it out again and then some flour for consistency.

I cleaned the peppers by making a "T" shaped cut, with the top of the T at
the stem. Opened them up and cleaned them out. Don't make the top of the T
too wide, the stems tend to open up when you do that. It worked pretty
well. Stuffed them with cream cheese, then dipped them in milk, rolled them
in flour and shook off the excess, then rolled them in the batter. I didn't
freeze them this time, just fried them immediately. It worked very well,
but I am going to try it again without flour in the batter, the coating
puffed up like a pancake, not what I wanted. My girlfriend is on a diet, so
I stuffed a couple of them for her with low-fat cream cheese and baked them
at 350 for about 25 minutes. That also worked pretty well, but the
jalapeno's weren't cooked, which is what she would prefer. So next time we
will try steaming one or two of them and see if that works better.

And after consuming four of these delicious little tidbits, I was inspired
to create the following haiku (for those who aren't familiar with it, haiku
is an oriental poetry style, typically consisting of three lines, with
5-7-5 syllables)
