Calling all Jalapeño lovers! This Jalapeño Popper Egg Rolls recipe is a mouth appetizer you will absolutely LOVE! It’s crunchy, it’s cheesy, and so flavorful! Not to mention, super easy to make. It serves as a delicious appetizer dish.
HOW TO MAKE THE JALAPEÑO POPPER EGG ROLLS:
When shopping for the Jalapeño peppers, I like choosing them all about the same height and width. Keep in mind that you will be stuffing them, so choose a good size you can fill it’s inside generously.
Other ingredients you will need are cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese and green onions. You can add in some spices like onion powder and black pepper if you like. Mix the cheese mixture until they are well blended together. Cut each end of the Jalapeño peppers and core out the seeds. Generously fill the jalapeños.
Place the stuffed jalapeño pepper onto a piece of wanton wrap and brush some water or egg wash onto the edges of the wrap. Wrap the jalapeño pepper, tucking it tight enough and roll to completely cover the whole piece. Repeat the same steps for the remainder of the peppers.
COOKING THE JALAPEÑO POPPER EGG ROLLS:
Heat some vegetable oil to medium heat, do not heat on high. Around 325 degrees and fry the egg rolls until they are gold in color. The reason you do not want the fry the egg rolls in high heat is because they wanton wrap will get a golden brown color on the outside before the jalapeño cook through. You will end up with crunch raw peppers on the inside.
Remove from the oil and lay on kitchen paper towel to drain some of the oil and serve while warm to enjoy them while the cheese is still melted. You can brush the wantons with a generous amount of olive oil and bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
