Fried Stuffed Jalapeños
These fried, cheese-filled jalapeños make a great accompaniment to pre-dinner drinks or a tasty side to a Southern feast.

Serves 8

16 fresh jalapeño chillies

150g tasty cheese, grated

1/3 cup cream cheese, softened

4 eggs, beaten

1 cup plain flour

2 cups panko breadcrumbs

vegetable oil, for deep-frying

Make a slit in each chilli and remove seeds. Place cheeses in a medium bowl, season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and mix to combine. Spoon cheese filling into the cavities of the peppers. Roll in flour, dip in egg, and coat with panko breadcrumbs.

Heat oil in a large saucepan to 160°C. Fry jalapeños for 3-4 minutes, or until golden and cheese melts. Drain on paper towel and serve immediately.
