I love spicy foods. Do you? Sometimes, I get stomach problem when I eat too much of spicy something. How about you? If I get stomach problem when I eat something spicy, I always tell myself ‘Next time, I will not eat too much of this.’ or ‘I will not put too much chilli on this.’ But promises are made to be broken. 😀
Oh my, even if you made a promise to yourself and you trust yourself that much that you will keep your promise, I tell you – you will never let these Chilli Poppers go. There’s no harm in breaking your promises when it comes to food. Well, take it from thenotsocreativecook who always promises herself to eat moderately. You know I can’t keep that promise. 😛
What can you say, SKD? 😀
SKD is blogging from Aromas and Flavours. When you go to her blog, you will smell those yummy foods she shares. SKD is also a sweet and thoughtful blogging buddy who never forgets to put a smile on your face. And this, Lemon Honey Glazed Chicken with Roasted Baby Potatoes , Quinoa and Corn on the Cob, my friends, are just one of the recipes that takes my breath away.
Oh, wait! This is a guest post, right? So, why am I still talking?
SKD, the floor is yours!
When one of the most creative cooks of the blogosphere asks for volunteers to do a guest blog for her, you are a mixed bag of feelings. Excitement, happiness, hesitation, acceptance and confusion follow in quick succession. Jhuls is one gem of a person, a beautiful blogger and an expert in cooking. To step into her domain and stay put on one of her pages, (until she has had enough of you and decides to put you into trash 😉 ) you really have to match up to her standards. But it is not every day you get this opportunity, so I decided to grab this offer with both hands and ladles and forks and spoons 😀
This is my first ever guest post and this is for You, my dear Jhuls ❤
After much thinking,( because there isn’t a thing which this Gourmet queen hasn’t churned up yet ) I set my mind to making Chilli Poppers. This is a beautiful snack which can be served as a Hors d’oeuvre at a party or a tasty appetizer at home. It is crisp on the outside with warm and juicy cheese bursting with flavors in your mouth with every bite. I used the Anaheim peppers because of their mildness. You can use Jalapenos as well, but make sure you remove all the seeds.
What you need :
- 10-12 Anaheim peppers/ Jalapenos
For the filling:
- ½ a cup of Cream Cheese
- ½ a cup of mayonnaise
- 1 tsp. Red Chilli flakes ( optional )
- 1 tsp. Dried Oregano
For the batter:
- 4 tbsp. All-purpose flour/ plain flour
- 3 tbsp. Cornflour
- 2 tbsp. Rice flour
- Little salt
- Ice cold water
For the coating:
- 1 cup bread crumbs
How to get going:
- Wash and dry the peppers. Make a long slit through the middle but make sure you don’t slit up the tip.
- Deseed carefully.
- Mix all the ingredients for the filling and put it in a piping bag.
- Pipe in the filling carefully into each pepper.
- When all are done, keep them in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to chill.
- Make a thick batter with ice cold water.
- Dip each pepper into this batter.
- Roll in the bread crumbs.
- Deep fry or bake.( I prefer frying it)
- Serve hot.
Thank you Jhuls for having me on. Hope I keep your readers entertained till you are back. 🙂
Whoa! Are those rockets? I think those Chilli Poppers will take you outer space in seconds. Err, when you forget to deseed them. 😛
Thank you for this wonderful post, SKD. You are the gourmet queen. 😉 I really appreciate all the efforts. ❤ How do I return back the favor? 😀 Okay, I would share these poppers to you. 😀
My time is up for now. I will be back again with another guest blogger. The next one is one of the bubbliest and I think her middle name is spelled MESS. 😀
