Jalapeno Poppers are one of my favorite snacks- I created this recipe because I hated how the jalapenos in store bought poppers have a tendency to be rubbery; When biting into them, all the filling spurts onto your tongue and burns you, leaving the jalapeno behind! With this recipe, you get equal amounts of crispy Popper with a spicy jalapeno/cheese filling.

How to Make Your Own Jalapeno Poppers


Combine the drained, diced jalapeno slices, softened cream cheese, and sharp cheddar cheese in a mixing bowl of a stand mixer. If you don’t happen to have a stand mixer, you can use a medium-sized bowl with a hand mixer instead.


Mix well to combine all of the ingredients, about 2 minutes.


Add the chopped, fresh cilantro, then set the mixture aside while you prepare the crispy popper coating.


Combine bread crumbs and crushed corn flakes in a food chopper or processor, blending well, then set aside.


Spoon the mixture out and form poppers, place on a clean cookie sheet.


Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes to let the filling firm.


Scramble one or two raw eggs in a dish, then add a tablespoon or so of water to thin, mixing well. Dip the chilled popper fillings into the egg and then into the bread crumb/cornflake mixture. (Repeat)


The poppers should have a nice coating on them, with no filling showing through. Repeat until they are all completely coated. Place the tray in the freezer and flash freeze until solid. It will take a couple of hours. Place in Ziploc bags or vacuum seal until ready to cook.
