Super Bowl Foods:  Stuffed Jalapeño Peppers, Green Sauce and my favorite, Southwestern Egg Rolls

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar jack cheese (combination of cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheeses)
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 6 jalapeno peppers (seeded and halved)*
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted ground cumin
  • Dash of salt (optional)
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
Directions:
  1. In a medium mix combine cream cheese, cheddar jack cheese, and roasted ground cumin.
  2. Spoon the mixture into each of the jalapeno pepper halves.
  3. In a small bowl add the milk, and in another small bowl add the flour.
  4. In a shallow pie dish add the breadcrumbs.
  5. Dip the jalapenos first in milk, then into the flour, ensuring that they are well coated.
  6. Allow to set for 10 minutes.
  7. Dip the jalapenos in the milk again, and then roll in breadcrumbs.
  8. In a deep fryer (or deep skillet) heat oil to 365 degrees.
  9. Fry coated jalapenos in batches for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Remove and drain on paper towels.
*When you are slicing and seeding the peppers consider wearing rubber gloves because they can burn your hands if you are not careful.
