pickled jalapeno peppers
unbleached all-purpose flour
corn oil for frying
Very good! I prevented my jalapenos from loosing the cheese by soaking toothpicks in water for 30 mins. & then used the toothpicks to keep the jalapeno casings together while frying. I also double breaded the jalapenos and added cajun seasoning to the flour/cornmeal mix instead of just salt.
this was ok, but did not like the meal batter either.
I have a similar recipe; i stuff mine with creme cheese, wrap with bacon, use toothpicks to close, great on the grill or in the oven!
*****tip****to take some of heat out of the peppers, cut ends off and hull out and soak in salt water over nite in fridge******
The cornmeal is a little course, maybe maza (corn) flour would be better. I also ended up rolling them in the egg mixture a second time and then through the cornmeal again to get enough coating to stick. The cheese also came out of mine while they were frying and there was not much left inside. However, my boyfriend (born and raised in Jalisco, Mexico) liked them, as did his uncle and his brother, there were none left! We'll see if there's a requestin my house for MAS de los jalapenos fritos! (more friend jalapenos, for the non-spanish speakers ;)
this is a great recipe if you like spicy food!!!!
Yummy! As I post this I am munching!
I too will try will cornmeal masa and used the soaked toothpick trick.
My son's are bomber addicks and love this!
I made these and they are wonderful!! Very time consuming, so then next time I wanted them I put the peppers in the blender added the cheese and made quesidellas. That was yuum!!
did not like the cornmeal texture
