Jalapeno Poppers Recipe

Big bite with a kick

Serves 3


6 fresh Jalapeno Chillis, cut lengthwise into halves, deseeded
6 whole Streaky Bacon Strips
1 Sun-dried Tomato, finely chopped
A handful of Breadcrumbs
75 g Philadelphia Original Cream Cheese, softened at room temp
50 g Cheddar Cheese, grated
25 g Parmesan Cheese, grated
6 Mozzarella Mini Balls, pulled in halves
6 Fresh Basil Leaves, torn into pieces
Canola Oil, for deep frying

No salt needed as the bacon strips provide enough sodium.
Wear gloves. Cut the jalapeno into halves, lengthwise.
In a clean dry bowl, mix the softened cream, cheddar and parmesan cheeses, sun-dried tomato and basil. 
Put a half of mini mozzarella into the halved jalapeno bulb.
Stuff the cheese mixture into the jalapeno.
Drizzle with breadcrumbs.
Wrap the jalapeno the streaky bacon.
Secure the bacon with a toothpick. 
Deep fry in canola oil until the bacon is brown and crispy.

Serve immediately.
