Jalapeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese and coated with a spicy breadcrumb mixture are always a treat. Serve them hot with pepper jelly and sour cream.

  • Blot dry interiors of the jalapeno peppers with a paper towel. Fill each jalapeno pepper half with approximately 1/2 ounce cream cheese. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, 1/4 teaspoon salt and vegetable oil. In another small bowl, mix remaining salt, flour, garlic powder, paprika and onion powder. Place cornflakes cereal crumbs in a third small bowl. One at a time, dip the jalapeno pepper halves into the egg mixture, the flour mixture, the egg mixture again, and finally the cornflakes cereal crumbs. Place coated peppers in a medium dish. Freeze approximately 2 hours.

  • Heat oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Fry the frozen peppers 3 to 4 minutes each, until dark golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve.

Pretty good. The boiling unfortunately took all the spice and flavor out of the jalapenos so I would recommend against it or at least only boiling them for a few minutes. Read More

These are tasty. They'd be better with fresh bacon bits mixed into the cheese. They're time-consuming to make but disappear quickly from the table. Read More

Please realize that when you boil jalapenos the steam creates a cloud of, basically, pepper spray. If you are sensitive to it, which we discovered I am, it will run out of not only the kitchen, but the rest of the house too. I will repeat this recipe, but not that step. Also, a cookie press with a narrow tip makes filling the peppers with the cream cheese super simple! Read More

After reading the reviews I chose to not boil my peppers first and I'm glad that I didn't. By not boiling them it gave them a nice crunch and they stayed such a pretty bright green. The only other change I made is that I added real bacon bits to the cream cheese mixture and that was a huge bonus. These were really good and would be just fine without the bacon too. My only recommendation is that you not boil the peppers or at least not more than a couple of minutes. Read More
