Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Peppers --> Kosher Recipes --> Jalapeno Peppers

Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers
Jalapeno Peppers are stuffed with a cream cheese mixture then battered and deep fried to make delicious little appetizers.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 12 jalapeno peppers, sliced in half lengthwise, seeds removed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • dash salt
  • 1 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • oil for deep frying
  • PREPARATION:

Fill jalapeno pepper halves with cream cheese and press halves back together. Combine eggs, water and salt. Dip jalapeno peppers into egg mixture and into breadcrumbs. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for 2 hours.

Heat oil in deep fryer to 370. Deep fry peppers in batches for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer jalapeno poppers to paper towels to drain.

 

 
Cooking Tips:   Heat (or pungency) is caused by chemical compounds called capsaicinoids. Capsaicin levels in a pepper pod are controlled by the genetics of the variety and environmental interaction of the plant while the plant is setting the pod.

Each variety of pepper has its own propensity to generate heat, and the heat it generates can only be within that propensity. A pepper with a low propensity for heat and exposed to stress in the field will become more pungent. A pepper with a high propensity for heat grown under favorable conditions will only produce moderate heat.
