Ideas for Jalapeno peppers?

May 10, 2007 6:46am CST
My husband loves jalapeno peppers so I cook a lot of mexican dishges which contain them, and also put them on pizza. Has anyone got any other ideas of recipes where jalapeno peppers could work well, apart from in mexican cooking? Do you like jalapenos or do you use different chillis?

How about making your own poppers? For filling: 1 cup cream cheese 1 tsp salt and garlic powder 1 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese 1/2 tesp lemon pepper For batter: 2 eggs 1 cup flour 1 tsp salt 1/2 cup milk 1 tsp baking powder 2 tsp melted shortening Mix filling ingredients and stuff peppers. mix batter ingredients well. Dip filled peppers into batter, fry at 350-375 degrees until browned.

Oh, you will love poppers. We can buy them frozen here in the USA, but they are much much better homemade:)

How about a quiche like thing? Jalapeno Pie INGREDIENTS: 1 can chopped mild green chilies, 4 ounces 3 to 5 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed, chopped 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated 8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated 6 eggs, beaten PREPARATION: Butter a 9-inch baking pan. Spread chilies and peppers in bottom of dish. Spread cheeses over pepper. Add dash of garlic powder to beaten eggs and pour over cheeses. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. And then some spicy corn muffins to go with it.... Jalapeno Corn muffins INGREDIENTS: 1 cup milk 1 large egg 1/4 cup vegetable oil 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons cornmeal 1 tablespoon baking powder 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup corn kernels, frozen thawed or canned drained 2 tablespoons minced jalapeno, or use mild chiles PREPARATION: Whisk together the milk, egg, and oil. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Stir in first mixture until all ingredients moistened, then stir in the corn and peppers. Spoon into greased muffin cups. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove from pan and serve warm. Makes 12 muffins.

Both recipes sound nice. What is a corn kernal? Is that the same as tinned sweetcorn?

We called them armadillo eggs in Texas, take fresh jalepanos, stuff with slice of cheddar and wrap with bacon, cut piece of bacon in half to wrap around it, bake at 350 til bacon is done and cheese is melted.

I'm in the UK and I've never seem fresh jalapenos in the shops. They only seem to come pickled in jars but I'll take a look as the armadillo eggs sound delicious.

My husband loves jalapeno peppers too. I put them into omellets for him all the time. He also likes them in his salads and on his sandwiches. I put them on his hamburgers too.

Jalapeño - Jalapeño Poppers to die for
I love Jalapeño Poppers but there is no place around here that actually makes them so when I get a craving for them and I am not in upstate New York here is the recipe I use: 12 jalapeños, split lengthwise and seeded 1/2 cup low or non-fat cream cheese (soft) 1/4 cup egg substitute 1/4 cup shredded low or no-fat cheddar cheese salt & pepper dried bread crumbs I mix together cream cheese and cheddar cheese, then add salt & pepper to taste. Stuff peppers with a teaspoon of cheese mixture. Coat stuffed jalapeños in egg and roll in bread crumbs. Place jalapeños on baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees F. for 20 minutes. Serve warm. These are so good!

Sounds delicious! What do you mean by "egg substitute"?

I like very mild, sweet peppers. Of all kinds. Nothing with a spice level above extra mild, and yes, I'm a tender wuss. I love tossing mild Jalapeños into my home made refried beans, stews, and soups. I love Mexican food with mild Jalapeño peppers and would love to grow some, as I also have bell peppers germinating on my kitchen counter.
