Tonight was a hot pepper night so I felt like making a few hor 'dourves for a couple of people. This is my infamous Jalapeno popper recipe...
This is a super easy (minus the pepper cutting) recipe for a tasty snack with some heat. Disclaimer: You might want help from a friend.
20-30 Jalapeno peppers
2 bricks of cream cheese
A few cloves of garlic
Italian bread crumbs
First off- The filling. Whip up the cream cheese with chopped garlic, chives, and onion powder. Cut top off of pepper, make lengthwise slit and clear seeds.
Fill pepper with cream cheese filling, submerge in milk, roll and coat in flower, repeat. Roll pepper in bread crumbs coating the entire pepper, this may take one of two dips in the milk.
Place coated peppers on a baking pan or cookie sheet and put on middle rack of pre-heated oven @400º for about 15-20 minutes, or until browned. (for large quantities to be frozen for future use, bake for about 10-15 minutes and then freeze)
There ya go, easy peasy. Great balance between crunchy, creamy and heat(y).
Dunk it in your favorite dip, personally I like these with a raspberry based dip.
