Baked Hot Pepper Fries


  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1-1/2 cups dry bread crumbs

  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • Ground cumin

  • 5-10 hot peppers (Pablano, Hungarian Hot Wax, Jalapeno, etc)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Beat the eggs in a small bowl.  Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

  3. Place dry bread crumbs on a medium plate, season with seasoning salt, chili powder and a dash of ground cumin; set aside.

  4. Slice the tops off the tops of the peppers. Using your knife or a spoon, scoop out the seeds and veins.

  5. Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices. 

  6. Dip the pepper strips in egg. Coat the strips with bread crumbs.

  7. Arrange the breaded pepper strips on a lightly greased baking sheet.  (I line my baking sheet with aluminum foil to make clean-up easier.)  Bake at 375F for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. 

  8. Serve with Ranch or Bleu Cheese Dressing, Fresh Tomato Salsa, voila!
