Step 1

Cut stems from jalapenos and cut lengthwise into four pieces; remove seeds and membranes.

Step 2

Blanch jalapeno spears in boiling water for one minute, then drain and cool in cold water. Drain and pat dry.

Step 3

Warm jelly until it is melted.

Step 4

Place 1/2 tablespoon goat cheese in the middle of a wrapper. Top with 2 jalapeno spears and a drizzle of melted jelly. Fold sides over, then roll up like a burrito (not too tight or it will cause them to leak when cooking), sealing the edges with a dab of water. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Step 5

Fry in shallow oil until golden or you may lightly brush with oil and bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes until golden. They are more crispy when fried.

Step 6

Serve with extra meted jelly as a dip.

Step 7

You can freeze them once cooked and reheat later in an oven until crispy and hot.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I saw these and had to run out and get the ingredients so I could try them out. Me and my husband love hot stuff and these were delicious, though not terribly hot because I removed the seeds. They were a great appetizer to munch on during tv time!
