Happy First day Of Summer!!! Today i’m going to share another delicious recipe! I hope you guys will try this!! It was soo worth it…although i will caution you to be careful with the oil…if it gets too hot it will splatter you…i got my forehead sprayed with boiling hot oil!! So fun!
Ingredients for making 8 Jalapeño Poppers:
- 1 jar Jalapeños
- one 8 oz. package Cream Cheese
- 1/2 All-purpose White Flour
- 1/2 Cornstarch
- 1 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1tsp. Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cups ice water
- Frying oil
Use a fryer or a pot of oil and heat it up to about 300 F. Just needs to stay around that temp.
In a small bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a tiny bowl whisk the egg before adding to dry mixture. Mix thoroughly before adding the ice water. (By ice water, just make it super cold). mix until well blended.
Set aside and take the cream cheese out of the fridge. Cut it into 8 even squares. Poke a hole in the middle of each square just deep enough for a slice of Jalapeño to fit in. Put one slice of Jalapeño in each and seal the square by squishing the Cream cheese over the hole with the Jalapeño.
Set in fridge until oil is ready! One at a time drop the cream cheese squares into the Tempura batter. (That mixture you made first.) and drop into fryer carefully…not any higher then an inch from the air…it will splatter you if you aren’t careful. Let fry for about 1 1/2 minutes to 3 minutes…or until golden!!
Enjoy!! These are sooo amazing guys!!
