Happy Tuesday! This weekend (Yes, I'm already looking forward to the weekend), I'm having my friends over for game night. We meet once a month and all take turns hosting. This will be the first time that most of them will see my home and since I can't disguise that the bought a money pit - my plan is to impress them with a new appetizer. This is one that I can't wait to try out on them.
Crispy Chorizo Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers
10 jalapeno peppers (the bigger the better)
10 ounces colby jack or mozzarella cheese
8 ounces cooked hot Mexican chorizo
1 cup bread crumbs
Olive oil for frying
Remove stems from the jalapeno peppers and remove innards through the top with a knife and very small spoon (or a corer if you have it). Stuff each jalapeno with layers of chorizo and cheese.
In a shallow bowl, beat the egg.
Dip the stuffed jalapeno peppers into the egg, then coat with bread crumbs.
In a deep frying pan, add about 1 inch of oil and heat thoroughly. Fry each breaded jalapeno popper about 3-5 minutes each side, or until golden brown.
