Chicken Fried Jalapeno Poppers

Lynn Socko


I saw a picture (no recipe) of "fried chile" on Chef Barbie Flores fb page. I knew I had to try and create this awesome sounding and looking appetizer, so I did a simple popper cheese mix, breaded and deep fried. It's an app you just have to try!!

How to Make Chicken Fried Jalapeno Poppers


  1. Completely combine cream cheese and any grated cheese you like, here is an awesome cheese, veggie mixture I like to use to stuff jalapeno poppers Best darn Cheese Filling or Spread. I had leftover cheese mix so I used it as a dip for chips, no loss!! You could also spread on bread and make a grill cheese sammie with the leftovers, if there are any.
  2. (The photo is sweet mini peppers, but it illustrates the way to slice off the "top" of the pepper) Slice top off of jalapenos lengthwise. Stuff with cheese mixture pushing cheese down and firmly packing it in jalapeno. I let mine sit in fridge uncovered overnight to allow the cheese to harden up some. Save the "tops" you slice off and bread and fry them as well, they make great jalapeno fries!
  3. Lightly flour, then dip in an egg and milk dip, then generously flour again packed the flour to the pepper.
  4. Deep fry for about 7-8 minutes till brown. Time will vary depending on size of jalapeno.
