Tip 1
Substitute
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
Tip 2
Variation
To serve as stuffed jalapeño halves instead of the stuffed whole peppers, cut peppers lengthwise in half; scrape out seeds and veins. Fill peppers with cheese mixture, then coat and refrigerate as directed. Cook, in batches, in hot oil as directed, reducing the cook time to 1 to 2 min. or until golden brown.

Directions

  1. Cut lengthwise slit in top of each pepper; scrape out seeds and veins. Combine next 3 ingredients; spoon into peppers.
  2. Roll peppers in flour; dip in eggs, then roll in cracker crumbs until evenly coated. Place in single layer in shallow pan. Refrigerate 15 min.
  3. Heat oil in medium saucepan to 375ºF. Add peppers, in batches; cook 3 min. or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
