Planted my peppers late this year and boy did the turn out great. Big beautiful bushes with large peppers galore. Now what to do with them all. First of with the Jalapenos Im going to make a bunch of Poppers to freeze. Im sure a lot of you have done this before but Ill walk you through what I did.

After slicing them in half I removed the seeds.

Then stuffed with cream cheese, cheddar, pepper jack, and bacon bits.

Then dipped in milk and flour

After a 10 min dry dipped in egg and milk then breaded.

Finally after a long morning ready to freeze or cook.

Don’t really want to thaw. Strait from the freezer to either the deep fryer (4 minutes 350°) or oven (20 – 25 minutes 350°) . Cooked to a Golden Brown.

Captferd, you have made very good use of the peppers. The preparation is straight forward and looks attractive. What is pepper jack?

Its actually Pepper jack shredded cheese. Store bought but I think its a mozzarella cheese with peppers mixed in it to spice it up a little. The cheddar cheese is shredded as well.
I used an 8 oz. pack of cream cheese and a total of 3/4 cup of the 2 shredded cheese and mixed them together real good with a fork for the filling. It made 40 poppers.

Those Poppers look delicious! I have used up all my jalapeno peppers making salsa, but if my neighbor has any extra, I will try making some of these to freeze for later. My children are starting to enjoy spicier foods and I think they would think this was a great treat. Thank you for the clear, easy instructions. : )

As a former native of California and home cheese maker, I want to clarify that Pepper Jack is actually Monterey Jack Cheese mixed with spices such as sweet pepper, rosemary and garlic, with habenero chilies and jalapeno peppers added for the spicy taste. The cool thing about Monterey Jack cheese is that it is a North American cheese, invented by the Franciscan Friars living in Monterey California.

Thanks for clarifying the cheese thing. To freeze them I sprinkled the leftover breading in pie pans (Like how there laid out on the plate) and froze them overnight. Then vacuum packed them with my food saver. They should be ok loose in a bag as well.

Thanks everyone for your interest in this post.

They look amazing! I might try to make some! Last year my family planted several plants and there were tons! We never knew what to do with them though! That is until I found this! But I was wondering, how do you cook them??

Maeghan, I deep fry mine. Frozen they take about 3 minutes. Fresh a little less time. They’re done when they are gold brown and you can see and hear a little of the filling coming out (Starts popping). I would think they could be fried up in a pan of oil as well sort of like breaded zucchini.

Enjoy
