DIRECTIONS

  • Carefully make a lengthwise slit up the side of each chile and remove the seed sack.
  • Cover the jalapenos with milk and soak overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Mix cheese and crab.
  • Drain, rinse and fill each chile with cheese mixture.
  • Coat each one lightly with flour (this helps the coating adhere).
  • Mix together the egg, water and oil and dip each chile in the mixture, then in the crumbs.
  • Make sure all the surface is coated with crumbs; gently pat any loose crumbs into place.
  • Place the chiles on a rack, to dry at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before frying.
  • This is important, because otherwise the coating will come off while frying.
  • Deep fry the chiles in hot oil until golden brown, drain on paper towels season with salt and serve hot with salsa or your favorite sauce.
