Prepare yourself for a frightfully delicious appetizer that'll leave you shivering with delight. These Spine-Chilling Spicy Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers, featuring Charlie's Saucery Hot Sauce, are perfect for your spooky soirée. Be warned; they're so spicy they might just raise the dead!
- 12 large jalapeño peppers (ghostly green and devilishly hot)
- 8 oz cream cheese (or your preferred cream cheese substitute)
- 1/4 cup shredded jack cheese (to add a ghostly glisten)
- 2 tablespoons Charlie's Saucery Hot Sauce
- 1/2 cup crushed pumpkin seed crumbs (for a wickedly crunchy coating)
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (to create a spooky dredging station)
- 2 eggs (beaten, like a witch's brew)
- Cooking oil for frying (for a devilish crisp)
1. Spine-Chilling Prep:
a. Put on your ghost-hunting gloves and carefully cut off the tops of the jalapeño peppers. Remove the seeds and membranes, leaving the peppers hollow like a ghost's howl.
2. Devilishly Delicious Filling:
a. In a cauldron (or mixing bowl), combine the cream cheese, shredded jack cheese, and Charlie's Saucery Hot Sauce. Mix until it's a chillingly creamy and spicy filling.
3. Spooky Stuffing:
a. Carefully stuff each hollowed jalapeño pepper with the devilishly delicious filling. Don't be scared to be generous; we want these poppers to ooze with flavor!
4. Wickedly Crispy Coating:
a. In a separate cauldron (or shallow dish), place the flour, and in another, the beaten eggs. Create a spooky dredging station by rolling each stuffed jalapeño in flour, dipping it in the beaten eggs, and then rolling it in the crushed pumpkin seed crumbs.
5. Fiery Fry:
a. Heat your cooking oil in a cauldron (or deep pan) to about 350°F (177°C). Carefully lower each coated jalapeño popper into the hot oil and fry until they turn a wicked golden brown.
6. Ghostly Garnish:
a. Once your Spine-Chilling Spicy Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers are crispy and ghostly gold, remove them from the cauldron and let them drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
7. Hellish Heat Warning:
a. Serve your devilishly spicy poppers with a warning – these are not for the faint of heart! Offer extra Charlie's Saucery Hot Sauce on the side for those who dare to crank up the heat even further.
