Serves: 6


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup crumbled, cooked bacon
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon Southwest-type seasoning
  • 6 medium fresh Jalapeno peppers, slit down the side, seeded and deveined
  • 1/2 cup dry Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 jumbo egg, well beaten
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

In small bowl stir together the cream cheese, bacon, Cheddar cheese, green onions, and seasoning; mix well. Fill each jalapeno with about 2 tablespoons of the filling. In a small bowl stir together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, cilantro leaves, and butter. Dip each jalapeno in the beaten egg and then roll in the crumb mixture to coat well. Place the filled and coated jalapenos on a wire rack on a baking pan to air dry for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile in an 8-inch frying pan heat the vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Fry the poppers 3 at a time. Fry for 1 minute or until first side is golden brown. Turn the popper over and continue frying for an additional 1 or 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining poppers. Serve with the sour cream. Refrigerate leftovers.

Jalepeño Poppers 14 or so ^ Filling, 1 block of cream cheese, soften 1/4 cup mayo 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar 2-4 cloves pressed garlic, depending on how much you like it. I use 4. Pinch of oregano Mix all in bowl. I put the filling in a ziplock and then fill the jalapeños, it's much easier that way.  Topping... Crushed corn flakes 1 egg Milk, about 2-3 tbs. Cooking spray After you fill the jalapeños mix the egg and milk together dip the jalapeños cheese side down into the egg mixture then into the corn flakes, place on baking sheet lined with tin foil or parchment. After you coat all the peppers spray the tops with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 30 mins or so or until the jalapeños are done.

These were really tasty but you can't get the panko to stick to the jalapeños, even after dipping in egg. The butter makes it thick enough but the skin on the peppers is too slick. I followed the recipe exactly.
