DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a bowl, cream together the cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, cumin, and cayenne.
  • In a shallow dish, combine the panko crumbs and 4 teaspoons of Essence. Spread 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture into the middle of each jalapeno half.
  • One at a time, dredge in the panko crumbs, pressing to coat. You are only trying to cover the cheese, leave the peppers bare. If necessary, repeat the process.
  • Place the coated peppers, cut side up, on the prepared baking sheet and bake until the filling is runny and the crust is golden, about 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately with cold beer.
