Preparing Poppers

To Prepare these Spicy ShotGut Poppers:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium-size bowl, add the sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, and mariner sauce and stir until blended.

Wash and core the jalapenos.

Scoop the cheese mixture into the jalapenos.

Pour the flour and Italian bread crumbs into a bowl and blend.

Crack the eggs into another bowl along with the milk and beat them.

Individually take each jalapeno and dredge them into the egg mixture then coat with flour and breadcrumbs.

If you are using mini muffin pans as I did, cut individual squares of foil sheets approximately 2-3 inches each. If you are using the jalapeno baking rack, you can eliminate this process.

Using a mini muffin pan;

Place each breaded jalapeno in the center of a foil sheet and loosely form around the pepper, while putting them into the mini muffin pan. Spray the tops of each pepper with vegetable oil so that they will crisp well while baking.

Using a jalapeno baking rack;

Place the rack onto a foil-lined cookie sheet. Spray the rack with vegetable oil and place a popper in each hole. Spray the top of each pepper with the oil spray so that they will crisp well while baking.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until crisp and tops are golden.

Remove from the oven and let cool.

Serve while hot with your favorite dipping sauce. (we love ours with Ranch dressing)

For Freezing:

After the jalapenos have cooled down, place the rack in the freezer for about 30 minutes to an hour. Take the rack out, remove the poppers, and put them into a freeze safe Ziploc bag. Date the bag and place it in the freezer for later.

When you are ready to eat them, place the frozen poppers back in the rack and bake in a preheated oven until hot again.
