Every time my husband goes to a grocery store, he eats these poppers at the store! So I made this at home today. We loved it. Delicious! It was not time consuming to make. Yes, great party appetizers. Didn't bother my skin when I handled the peppers. Thank you.
I braked these at 350 in an upright position and instead of halving then I hollowed them out and stuffed them. Came out great super crispy and less calories from not frying. Use a muffen pan to place them upright or the filling will boil out
I have never worn gloves to make this, and have never had any problems. Obviously, if you think you may have sensitive skin or are making several batches of this, please wear gloves to protect your hands while deveining and de-seeding the peppers.
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!!
Great Jalapeño Poppers! I followed the recipe as written, and deep fried, they were excellent...crispy, cheesy and delicious! While easy to prepare, they do take some time and effort, but they're well worth it. We did wear gloves while splitting, seeding and deveining the jalapeño peppers and used a piping bag to speed the stuffing process. We also used Japanese Panko bread crumbs for about half the poppers which gave them an excellent crunch! It's important to let these dry at least the 10 minutes between breadings and longer might be better. I found that to be crucial. These disappeared so quickly! Thanks for this delicious recipe.
