What You Need

24
 fresh jalapeño peppers (about 2 lb.)
1
pkg.   (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1
pkg.   (8 oz.) KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
8
slices  cooked OSCAR MAYER Bacon, crumbled
1/4
cup  flour
2
 eggs, beaten
40
 RITZ Crackers, finely crushed (about 1-2/3 cups)
2
cups  oil

Make It

CUT lengthwise slit in top of each pepper; scrape out seeds and veins. Combine next 3 ingredients; spoon into peppers.

ROLL peppers in flour; dip in eggs, then roll in cracker crumbs to evenly coat. Place in single layer in shallow pan. Refrigerate 15 min.

HEAT oil in medium saucepan to 375ºF. Add peppers, in batches; cook 3 min. or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Variation
To serve as stuffed jalapeno halves instead of the stuffed whole peppers, cut peppers lengthwise in half; scrape out seeds and veins. Fill peppers with cheese mixture, then coat and refrigerate as directed. Cook, in batches, in hot oil as directed, reducing the cook time to 1 to 2 min. or until golden brown.
Substitute
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
