Jalapeno Poppers

If you love Jalapeno Poppers but think you can't make them yourself, then think again.  They are easy and delicious!  In a few short steps I will tell you how I make them and have you making them too..I hope..

You will need:
15 Jalapeno Peppers
1- 8 oz package of Cream Cheese
1- 8 oz package of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 cup of milk
1 1/2 cups of flour
3 cups of seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
Oil for frying

The first thing you want to do is gather all your ingredients.

 Wash your peppers

I would suggest wearing rubber gloves when you cut your peppers.  
Cut the peppers in to pieces and remove pith and seeds.

Put your flour and a medium bowl and add the salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder and garlic powder to make seasoned flour.

Mix your two cheeses together real well.

Crush your bread crumbs in a blender or food processor

Now you are ready to make those poppers.

I kept rubber gloves on while filling the peppers with the cheese mix.

Next I dipped them into the milk and then rolled them in the flour mixture

I left these to sit and dry on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes and then I dipped them in the milk again and rolled them in the bread crumbs.  Let these dry another 10 minutes.

Dip once more time in milk and roll in bread crumbs.  Let dry 10 more minutes.
Fry in hot oil until golden brown.  1 to 1 1/2 minutes.

If you want you can freeze these or eat now.  


  1. Is there a process once removed from the freezer? Or do you just thaw and eat?

    1. If I freeze them. I do that before deep frying. You have to bake or fry them when taken out of the freezer.
      I prefer baking them if frozen instead of frying.
