Tofu Jalapeno Poppers


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 5 min
  • Ready Time : 20 min



  • 8 ounces Firm tofu
  • 24 Fresh jalapeño peppers, 2, 1/2 to 3-inch size
  • 1 1/4 ounces Taco seasoning mix, prepared
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 4 Eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 Water
  • 1 1/2 Dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Soybean oil (vegetable oil,) as needed
  • Salt



1 Cut tofu into 2 x 1/2 x 1/2- inch strips. Place tofu on a thickness of several paper towels on a cutting board and position board on a slant to allow excess liquid to drip off. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2 Wash peppers. Use plastic gloves to avoid retaining the hot flavor on your fingers. Slit the pepper lengthwise up both sides, leaving the stem intact. Remove seeds.
3 Roll tofu strips in taco seasoning. Place into pepper; press pepper together. Roll pepper in flour.
4 Beat eggs and water together. Mix bread crumbs, cheese, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper together.
5 Holding the stem of each floured pepper, dip into egg mixture and then into crumb mixture to coat entire surface; repeat to get a nice coating. Place on waxed paper-lined pan and refrigerate until ready to use.
6 Deep-fry at 375°F 2 to 5 minutes or until browned. Drain and serve hot.
