Preparation

  1. Cut the top off each jalapeño and core it, scraping out all the seeds, with the back side of a spoon.
  2. Fill the jalapeños with pepper jack cheese, either melted or cubed.
  3. Place the top back on the jalapeños and secure with two toothpicks inserted diagonally.

  5. NOTE: Be sure each toothpick goes through both the top and the bottom of the jalapeño to secure it.
  6. Dredge in flour, eggs, then breadcrumbs. For a thicker breading, double bread the jalapeños by repeating the egg and breadcrumb dredging.
  7. Heat oil to 325°F (160°C).

  12. Enjoy!
