  1. Cut a short slit into each jalapeno pepper. Remove as many seeds as possible. Slice Cheddar cheese into approximately 1/4 inch by 1 inch strips. Stuff each jalapeno with a Cheddar cheese strip.
  2. Place beaten eggs in a small bowl.
  3. In a small dish, mix yellow cornmeal, flour and salt.
  4. One at a time, dip jalapenos in the eggs. Roll in the yellow cornmeal mixture until well coated. Arrange on a metal rack, and allow them to sit approximately 30 minutes.
  5. Heat corn oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  6. In small batches, using a slotted spoon, lower peppers into the heated oil, and fry until crisp and golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

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 ...

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

Made as written and we liked these a lot. I actually like the grit of cornmeal so that was not an issue for me. If you don't like the grit then I recommend you substitute the cornmeal with Masa...
