Step 1:

Start by removing the seed of the jalapeno and slicing it into small cubes. You can keep the seeds if you want them to be more spicey. You can use as many jalapenos as you like.

Step 2:

Add 4.2 oz of shredded cheese to a bowl, followed by 1/2 cup of cream cheese. Mix until well combined. Once mixed, add the diced jalapenos and mix again.

Step 3:

In a medium bowl, beat 1 egg and add a pinch of salt.

Step 4:

Prepare the bowl of breadcrumbs and flour.

Step 5:

Get some of the cheese mixture and form it into a ball using your hands. Coat it well with flour, dip it into the egg mixture, then toss it into the breadcrumbs. Dip it again into the egg and back into the breadcrumbs. Place on a plate and repeat with the remaining cheese mixture. Use your 1 hand for the cheese mix and egg coat, then the other for the flour and breadcrumb coat.
