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 popper behind! With this recipe, you get equal amounts of Crispy Popper with a spicy jalapeno/cheese filling.

You’ll Need:
1/2 cup fine, dry bread crumbs
1/2 c. Crushed Corn Flakes
1 Tbsp Cilantro (I use fresh, chopped)
1 12-ounce jars sliced pickled jalapeno peppers, drained & chopped
8-ounce cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 – 2 eggs, scrambled with a fork and set aside
