Pepper Poppers

If you have an over abundance of peppers and you feel like eating a greasy snack, try these pepper poppers. Theyre great!

You can use any kind of peppers you have, but I used jalapenos, mariachi peppers, and anaheim peppers because those are what I have in my garden. Just slice down one side of the pepper, fill it with stuffing, dip it in batter, and fry in vegetable oil until brown and crispy.


  • tofutti cream cheese
  • nutritional yeast
  • basil
  • garlic
  • chives
  • salt and pepper


  • 1 cup flour (I used regular flour, but I bet chickpea flour would be really good).
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup beer
  • 3 Tb vegetable oil
  • dash of cayenne pepper

I used peanut sauce for dipping because I had some left over, but a creamy dipping sauce made with a tofu/soymilk/tahini/lemon base would probably be really nice.

If you have leftover batter, you can use it to fry other vegetables. I fried some bananas and squash then squirted agave nectar on them. yum.

  1. Ha! So this is where all of our garlic went, huh? Those poppers must have been potent!

  2. Thank you for this recipe. They look delicious, and I’ll bet they taste delicious. I will definitely be trying this recipe soon.
    Wish I had found this blog sooner. I love foods that are Mexican, or foods that have a lot of ingredients that are used in Mexican cuisine, especially peppers!
    Thanks for taking the time to share recipes too.
