Bean and Cheese Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers


Friday nights use to mean bar nights when I was younger. After a long work week, we’d go out with friends to get a few cocktails and some greasy bar foods. One of my favorite greasy bar foods was jalapeño poppers from a bar a few minutes from our home. They made the best jalapeño poppers I’ve ever had. They were fresh, crunchy and incredibly spicy.


Now our bar food usually comes from our own kitchen. This afternoon I made our favorites, jalapeño poppers, but with a healthier spin. Instead of a massive cheese-ball and a little jalapeño, these poppers are stuffed with a mixture of re-fried beans and cheese.

Before I deep-fried these, I lightly breaded them with cornmeal instead of the usual thicker flour breading. The light crunchy cornmeal combined with the crisp fresh jalapeños makes the perfect popper.
