Mom’s Jalapeno Poppers

This post is for my wonderful mom. She is a great cook!

This is a slightly healthier version of fried jalapeno poppers that I like better than any fried version I have ever eaten.

24 fresh large jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise, stems, seeds and membranes removed
6 ounces’ cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups grated Jack Cheese or Colby Jack
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside. In a bowl, cream together the cream cheese, Jack cheese, and cumin. In a small bowl, beat together the eggs, milk. In a shallow dish, place the bread crumbs. In a third dish, combine the flour with salt and pepper to taste. Spread 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture into the middle of each jalapeno half. One at a time, dredge in the flour, dip into the egg mixture, then dredge in the bread crumbs, pressing to coat. If necessary, repeat the process. Place the coated peppers, cut side up, on the prepared baking sheet and bake until the filling is runny and the crust is golden, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with a creamy ranch style dressing or dip and plenty of cold beer.
