Cheese Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers
You want something particularly awesome to feed to your guests before Thanksgiving is laid out on the table, or maybe afterwards for a snack during the games? If so, look no further. While certainly not traditional Holiday fare, they are absolutely awesome and sure to please everyone that has a taste for something a little bit spicy.
Here’s a video that shows you how to make them:
Yields: 12 jalapeño poppers

We used this amazing gun, officially known as the Fondoodler (yes, you heard right!), to dispense hot melted cheese into each jalapeño (see Step #2 below). To find out more, click here.
(PSST: We make money if you buy this crazy thing!)
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. To do this we used the Fondoodler.
3. Place the top back on the jalapeños and secure with two toothpicks inserted diagonally. (Be sure each toothpick goes through both the top and the bottom of the jalapeño to secure it.)
4. Dredge in flour, eggs, then breadcrumbs. For a thicker breading, double bread the jalapeños by repeating the egg and breadcrumb dredging.
5. Heat oil to 325°F/160°C. Fry each jalapeño popper until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes).
6. Cool and allow extra oil to drip off on a plate lined with paper towels.
7. Season with salt and serve immediately once cooled enough to handle.
