Jalapeno Poppers

   12 large jalapenos, seeded and cut in half
   2 cups Monterey jack cheese, shredded
   1 large egg
   2 tablespoons milk
   1 tablespoon flour
   1 teaspoon Parmesan, grated
   salt and pepper
   1 1/2 cup bread crumbs, seasoned or unseasoned
   vegetable oil

      Wash jalapenos, cut in half, and take out seeds. Stuff each half with grated jack cheese. In shallow bowl, mix flour, egg, Parmesan, milk, salt, and pepper to taste. Place breadcrumbs in flat dish. Dip jalapeno in egg mixture and then in breadcrumbs. Place in freezer for 1/2 hour. Take out of freezer and deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.

Notes: the seasoned breadcrumbs will give you more flavor and since it is salted, you don't need to add much salt to the egg mixture. The unseasoned breadcrumbs will give your coating more of a firm consistency when fried. Use Jack cheese with pimentos for a mild flavor, or jalapenos for a double inferno. Also, add some chili powder and/or cumin to the egg mixture for a more "Mexican" type flavor.
