These poppers are fantastic and a common request whenever it is my husband's turn to host poker! A little effort, but it's worth it!
"I once asked my wife to core the jalapenos while I was at work. We were having a garden party and there were about 50 peppers to prepare.
Unfortunately I didn't tell her to where gloves. Her hands were burn't red from the pepper oils and I had to take her to the hospital. I don't think she'll ever forgive me for that. Be warned if your making a lot of these where gloves!!"

Top-ranked recipe named "Awesome Jalapeno Poppers"
**When preparing your jalapeno peppers for this recipe (de-seeding and de-veining), please consider wearing gloves, if you think you might have any irritation. It is not always necessary, but may be a good idea as a precaution.
1. In a mixing bowl, combine your cream cheese, cheddar cheese and chopped bacon. Spoon your mixture into the jalapeno halves creating a mound on top.
2. Add the milk, flour and bread crumbs into 3 separate pie plates or shallow bowls.
3. Dip your stuffed jalapenos into the milk, then the flour and let rest for 10 minutes to dry. Discard flour, as you will not need it any more.
3. Dip your stuffed jalapenos again into the milk, then roll them into the breadcrumbs. Let rest for 10 minutes to dry.
4. Dip your stuffed jalapenos again into the milk and then the breadcrumbs, making sure that you are completely coating the pepper in the breadcrumbs, as much as possible.
5. Heat oil in either a medium skillet or fryer to 365 degrees F (180 C) and fry for approximately 2 minutes and 30 seconds, until golden brown. Remove and let it drain on a paper towel lined plate.
Enjoy with cool sour cream.

csuzcook 1 month agoI may have cooked them too hot but the peppers weren't tender enough. I will make them again but may blanch the peppers before stuffing them. My husband doesn't like cream cheese so I made some for him with cheddar and American cheese mixed together. Worked great.
BarefootCook 1 month agoYum! Ended up delaying preparing these after prepping the peppers so froze then thawed them (unstuffed) and still worked well. Definitely leave some veins or add cayenne to the cream cheese if you have wimpy peppers.
Greyghost28 1 month agoRecipe was good I would recommend using house of Autry as a seasoning and possibly leaving in some of the veins since they weren't that hot.

michellehershseidle 1 year agoMade these tonight, and they were amazing! Following the directions regarding letting the poppers sit in between breadings is key. Thank you for an awesome recipe!
