Jalapeno Poppers

These are fairly simple to make and are great to munch on while watching your favourite sports show. Of course having a cold beer to wash them down with doesn't hurt either.

  • Jalapeno peppers (As many as you would like to do)

  • Mozarella cheese

  • Vegetable oil for deep frying


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup of milk

  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil

To begin with, make up the batter and let it rest while you heat the oil for frying and prepare the peppers.

Preparing the peppers is simple. Just cut them lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds and any membrane that may be there. Also make sure there is no stem pieces on the top.

Next, place a small cube of the cheese in the center of the pepper. It's better if you can fill the insides but it's a lot easier to just stick a small cube in there. Dip the pepper into the batter, making sure it is completely covered. Drop into the hot fat and cook until a nice golden brown. Drain and serve. Goes great with bluecheese dressing.
