Peri Bites

I'll say it, I love deep fried things.
Anything works ! 
but these succulent and cheesy peppers are on the top of the list !

They are a bit time consuming, but really easy and well worth the effort.

And you can do a lot with this recipe. Like you can skip chicken and just do cheese.
You can skip cheese and add chicken with boiled potato mash.

Just have fun with it !
You'll need

15-20 jalapeno chilies (or any other large chilies)
1 cup of break crumbs
2-3 eggs

(For the Filling)
100 grams of chicken, boiled and shredded.
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
3 tbsp of cream cheese.
salt to taste
1/4 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
1-2 Green onion chopped
1 tbsp of peri peri sauce (you can skip this if you dont have the sauce on hand)

Mix all the ingrediants of the filling. Keep aside.

Make a slit lenght wise on the chilies, being careful not to cut the chilies all the way.
Carefully remove the seeds.

Put the filling in the chilies.

Dip in egg, than crumbs. Do this again so that there is double coating on the chilies.
Keep in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Deep fry in hot oil, making sure not to over-crowd the pan.
Fry till golden brown.

Enjoy !


  1. Hi! I had a problem with my peri bites.. The crumb coating on them slipped off and what remained of it was not as crispy as it should be.. Can you suggest how to prevent this problem?
