Let's Make It
Press 1 piece of VELVEETA in each pepper half. Dip peppers in milk, then in combined flour and bread crumbs, turning to evenly coat all sides. Repeat to coat each pepper twice. Place on baking sheet.
Freeze 5 hours or until firm.
Add 6 peppers to hot oil (400°F). Fry 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oil; drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining peppers. Serve warm.
For an even spicier pepper, prepare using VELVEETA Mild Mexican Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product with Jalapeno Peppers.
