Does anyone else love jalapeno poppers, but hates getting one huge piece of jalapeno right when you bite in or all breading? Well, step aside jalapenos, we’ve got a new sheriff in town! These are HATCH. POPPERS. Yes, you read that right. I’ve basically just deep fried a ball of pure bliss, which who doesn’t love that? These poppers are lightly breaded with the inside being a perfectly gooey mess of cream cheese, shredded Hatch Chiles (we see you, Reasor’s), and some other amazing cheeses. It’s the type of gooey where it’s super easy to bite into and dip into some amazing sauces, but doesn’t fall apart in your hand or end up all down the front of your shirt.
These poppers, paired with some local Tulsa beer is absolutely perfect for these end of summer, back to school snacks or appetizers for the family. They’ve got just enough spice to get your attention but not so much you’ll panic when your two-year-old sneaks a bite.
As the Reasor’s Hatch Fest comes to a close, let’s go out with a BANG and a POP with my very delicious…..
…..Hatch Poppers. 🙂
1. 1oz package cream cheese
2. 2oz Purple Haze goat cheese
3. 1 cup blended Hatch Chile peppers
4. 1 cup Mexican four cheese
5. 1 egg
6. 1 cup flour
7. 1 tsp garlic powder
8. 1 tsp onion powder
9. 1 tsp paprika
10. 1/2 milk
First, in a mixing bowl, add cream cheese, goat cheese, peppers and four cheese. Second, mix together until all ingredients are well blended together. Third, in a separate bowl mix your egg and milk together. Fourth, in a separate bowl mix your flour, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika together. At this point you should have three separate bowls in order starting with your cream cheese mixture. Fifth, take your cream cheese mixture and make small patties out of them or size them to your preference. Sixth, dip the patty in your second bowl that has your egg wash. Seventh, place the patty in the flower bowl and coat the patty until completely covered. Eighth, once you have used up all of your cream cheese mixture place these flour coated patty’s on a pan and place them in the freezer for 30 minutes. Ninth, once these patty’s are frozen through they are ready to be placed in the fryer. Finally, place them in a deep fryer at 400 degrees for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!
