12 jalapeno peppers, about 2 1/2-inches long
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
2 large eggs
2/3 cup dry unseasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
sour cream


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a bak­ing sheet and set aside.

Carefully slice peppers in half lengthwise. Scrape out and discard the seeds and membranes.

Combine the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, garlic powder, and chipotle pepper in a bowl. Mix until well combined. Spoon the mixture into each pepper half, pressing down to fill them solidly.

Beat the eggs in a bowl until frothy. In a zip-top bag, combine the breadcrumbs and salt. Dip the filled pepper halves into the egg, then toss in the bag with the breadcrumbs until evenly coated.

Place the coated peppers on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve hot. Can serve with sour cream or a cheese dip, if desired.

I got a little extra fancy with these. I cooked and crumbled some bacon and added that to the filling. I used spicy seasoned breadcrumbs instead of plain. SO good!

These are my new favorite treat. To the person who asked about the bread crumbs sticking to the peppers, I think they are only supposed to stick to the cream cheese part and not be totally covered. If you wanted the breadding allover you'd need to make a batter or egg wash or something to get it to stick.

Jalepeno poppers are my bar-food weakness. These are great and they aren't fried so I can eat them a little more guilt-free. Good seasoning on the filling too!

Good Recipe everything tasted great except how did you get the breading to stick to the bottom side of the jalapeno, mine would not stick and they ended up bare back kind of disappointing.

These were really good, but I made the mistake of using italian breadcrumbs instead of plain ones, so they tasted a little strange. I also used HUGE jalapeno's so i had to cut them up into bit size peices. Other then that, they were great.

I make these all the time for parties/entertaining. Everyone loves them and ask for the recipe. They are also baked instead of the traditional fried poppers...much healthier.

The kids actually loved it! You can make it less hot by using small sweeter peppers too. And it doesn't really require many ingredients either. A total winner!
