12 whole pickled jalapenos
8 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces crab meat
3 egg whites
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup flour
oil, for frying


Allow the cream cheese to soften. Add the crab and blend well.

Slit the peppers lengthwise. Remove any seeds. Fill the peppers with the crab mix and close.

Whip the egg whites. In a separate bowl, combine the cornmeal and flour.

Dip the peppers first in the egg, then in the flour mix, back in the egg, and finally in the flour mix again. Allow to rest 20 minutes.

Heat oil to 350 degrees F. Fry peppers until just brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

These spicy appetizers make great cocktail party treats. Serve with marinara sauce.
