Jalapeño Poppers One
Jalapenos are the most popular chile peppers in the US. This is probably due to the availability and versatility of the chile. Jalapenos have a balanced combination of flavor and heat. The demand for these have caused breeders to develop a broad range of varieties.
Monterrey Jack or cheddar cheese, sliced
all-purpose flour, for dredging
1 large egg, beaten
Slit the peppers lengthwise and remove the seeds with a spoon handle. Stuff each pepper with cheese. Hold together with a toothpick, if necessary. Dip the peppers in flour, then egg, then dredge in flour again. Deep-fry for 5-7 minutes or until done.
