Have you ever try Arby’s jalapeno poppers? Well, in this recipe, everything begins with filling a hollowed-out jalapeño pepper with cheese and additional components of your preference. The nicest part about preparing it is you can personalize the cheese topping whatever you like. Consider most of creative ideas you could make, such as for the filled peppers. Here are Arby’s jalapeno poppers ingredients you should prepare.


  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup bread crumbs, seasoned
  • 1 cup flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 quart vegetable oil
  • 12 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 30 jalapeno peppers
  • 16 ounces softened cream cheese

Cooking Instructions:

  1. To make Arby’s jalapeno poppers, slice the jalapenos lengthwise in half. Remove the seeds and pith using a spoon.
  2. Combine Cheddar cheese and cream cheese in a small bowl to make the filling. Once it is evenly distributed, add the cheese filling to the half of jalapeno using a spoon.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, paprika, salt, chili powder, pepper, and garlic powder to make seasoning flour. Stir the mixture until smooth.
  4. Pour the milk in another container.
  5. Sequentially, dip the cheese-filled jalapenos into seasoning flour then into the milk, and into the seasoned flour again.
  6. Place the floured Jalapenos on a baking sheet with a rack. Let them sit for about 10 minutes until they are slightly dry.
  7. In a rather large bowl, pour the breadcrumbs.
  8. Dip the jalapenos again in the milk, then into the breadcrumbs. After that, put them back on the shelf.
  9. Start heating the oil to about 350 degrees.
  10. For the second time, dip the jalapenos back into the milk and then the breadcrumbs. Let the breaded jalapeno sit for 5 minutes.
  11. You can fry 1 to 2 jalapenos at the same time until they turn golden brown. The likely frying time required is about 1 to 2 minutes.
  12. After changing color, remove and drain jalapenos on a resting rack. Avoid using a tissue to dry it because it will make the bottom of jalapenos a little wet.

The preparation above yields 30 jalapenos, but you might also simply double or triple the quantity. The jalapenos may then be frozen and reheated when prepared to cook.

This recipe, on the other hand, is adaptable. You may add some sliced sausages or substitute actual cheeses for the cream cheese, such as mozzarella or parmesan cheese. Whichever you decide, Arby’s jalapeno poppers are a wonderful option for simple event snack.
