Ingredients:

  • 9 jalapenos, sliced in half, deseeded
  • 3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs (I used panko, and had to use 1 cup for large jalapenos)
  • 1/4 teas cayenne pepper (for the bread crumbs)
  • 1/4 teas pepper (for the bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 teas garlic powder (for the bread crumbs)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teas salt (for the bread crumbs)
  • 2 oz cream cheese (I used 3oz or a little more for large jalapenos)
  • 1/2 cup Mexican blend cheese
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 teas cayenne pepper (for the cream cheese,optional)
  • 1/2 teas garlic powder (for the cream cheese)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl add bread crumbs, 1/2 to 1 teas Cayenne, pepper, garlic powder & salt, mix. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, add the egg & egg whites, mix. Set aside.
  4. In a plate, add flour. Set aside.
  5. To make cream cheese filling, add the cream cheese, milk & mexican blend cheese to a bowl. Stir until all ingredients are well incorporated. If you are using Cayenne, add and mix well.
  6. Slice the jalapenos in half lengthwise, deseed using a spoon. Stuff each Jalapeno with cream cheese mixture. Once completed, dip Jalapeno in the flour first, roll to make sure all sides are coated. Remove excess flour.
  7. Then dip Jalapeno into egg batter completely.
  8. Then roll in the breadcrumbs, making sure you coat all sides.
  9. Place the popper cream cheese side up on a foiled baking sheet. Repeat until all poppers are coated. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Check at 25 minutes, do not over bake, otherwise the cheese will begin to ooze out of the popper.

NOTE: I used fairly large jalapenos, so I had to adjust the amount of the ingredients..I also sprayed the tops with oil before baking to ensure a crunchy top:) These can also be dipped in a favorite sauce.
