Ingredients

12 – 15 fresh or pickled jalapeños

1 x 230 g LANCEWOOD® Medium Fat Jalapeño & Chilli Cream Cheese 

50 g LANCEWOOD® Mature Cheddar, finely grated

250 ml milk

325 ml flour, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste

250 ml dried breadcrumbs

Oil for deep frying

  

Method

Wear plastic gloves while handling the jalapeños.  Cut the jalapeños in half from top to bottom, but do not cut right through – keep the top part with stem intact.  

Use a teaspoon and carefully scoop out the ribs and pips. Mix the cream cheese and grated cheese together.  Stuff into the jalapeño.  Press together to close.  Dip the jalapeño in milk and then in flour. Repeat.  

Leave to stand for 10 minutes.  Dip in milk again and then again in flour and leave to stand for another 10 minutes.  Dip in milk again and then in breadcrumbs.  Repeat and leave to stand for 10 minutes.  Heat the oil and fry the jalapeno poppers until golden – about 2 minutes.  Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper.

*Try LANCEWOOD® Medium Fat Sweet Chilli or Spring Onion & Chives Cream Cheese instead of Plain Cream Cheese.
