“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.” - by Jackie Smith
Original recipe yields 8 stuffed peppers
- Bring a half filled medium saucepan of water to boil. Place jalapeno peppers in the water 10 to 15 minutes, until tender. Drain and cool.
- 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.

"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...." See more"
"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...." See 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 t..." See morehe 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!"
