Baked -Cheesy Jalapenos bites

Jalepenos stuffings


Baked jalapeno peppers are easy, delicious appetizer and perfect for snacks. This recipe is healthy alternative to the fried version. It goes well with Pizza & good to try during weekend for family get together’.

Make it a meal by serving with main course wheat Oat bran Oil free Pizza (Recipe link) and fibre rich Cinnamon sticks (Recipe link)

Preparation time-15 minutes
Baking time-12-15 minutes


  • Low fat Mozzarella cheese-100gms
  • Jalapenos-8small
  • Ground cumin-1/2tsp


  • Plain flour-3tbsp
  • Corn flour-1tbsp
  • Garlic powder-1/2tsp
  • Milk-enough to form the batter
  • Powdered corn flakes -1cup (3-4cups of plain corn flakes crushed to fine powder in blender/food processor)
  • Oil- for brushing


  • Pre-heat the oven at 180deg c, grease and line the baking tray
  • Halve the Jalapenos lengthwise and carefully deseed them
  • Bowl 1: combine powdered cornflakes, garlic powder together.
  • Bowl 2: combine plain flour, corn flour add in milk 1tbsp at a time until a dropping consistency batter is formed.
  • Bowl 3: combine mozzarella cheese, cumin powder.
  • Spread 1tbsp cheese spread from bowl 3 to each half of the jalapenos.
  • Dip the stuffed jalapenos in bowl2 (Batter) and then roll it in the crumbs (Bowl 1).
  • Repeat this process again (dip again in the batter and roll in the bread crumbs) so doing it twice helps even coating.
  • Then place the coated jalapenos on the baking tray and bake it for 25-30mins / until golden brown.

Serve hot.

• You can even deep fry it but it adds more calorie to your dish.
• Feel free to select stuffing cream of your choice

    Jalapeno poppers, parrot eggs, or just plain stuffed jalapenos, call them whatever you like. I am a sucker for them and know that frying them is bad for me. This easy recipe is a healthy substitution. Don’t forget to wear gloves when working with peppers due to the oils that can burn your skin and eyes. Thank you Chitra for this recipe post!
