Ingredients

  • 18 large jalapeno peppers (or more if using smaller ones)
  • 12 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 oz pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 3 oz monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup milk (more as needed)
  • 1 cup flour (more as needed)
  • 2 cups bread crumbs (more as needed)
  • Oil for deep frying

Directions

  • Heat oil to about 360'
  • Slice each jalapeno length wise, without cutting all the way through
  • Scoop out the seeds and ribs
  • Combine the four cheese and fill each pepper with mixture
  • Put milk in a tall glass, the flour in a shallow bowl, and bread crumbs in a separate shallow bowl
  • While holding by the stem, dip jalapeno in milk, then roll in flour, set aside to dry (maybe 10 minutes)
  • Dip jalapeno in milk again, this time rolling in bread crumbs and set aside to dry
  • Dip them again in milk, roll in bread crumbs a final time, making sure well coated and set aside to dry.
  • Once the oil is hot enough, deep fry 3 - 4 at a time, until golden brown (about 2 minutes).
  • Drain on paper towel.

Notes

Not much of a backstory. I looked at several recipes and methods and come up with these. I made them for our Labor Day BBQ and they were a great success. I do have one huge recommendation.....wear gloves while putting these together!
