Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Here's a little snack I whipped up the other day for our open house. I needed a little appetizer and thought this might go over well. IT Guy loves jalapeno poppers that you can get at some fast food places, and these were a pretty tasty substitute. You can make them as hot as you like by leaving in some of the seeds. I made sure and took them all out because I wasn't sure how much heat people wanted. But they were very good....there were none left!
25 Wonton wrappers
5 - 6 fresh jalapenos
25 1-inch chunks of cheddar cheese
1 egg - beaten
oil for frying
Slice washed jalapenos in half lengthwise. Slice off the tops. Remove seeds and veins. Cut each half into 1 inch pieces.
Brush edges of a wonton wrapper with egg wash.
Place a piece of jalapeno and a chunk of cheese on the wonton wrapper. Add a sprinkling of salt then fold the edges in to make a little package. Repeat with the rest of the wrappers, jalapenos, cheese and salt.
Heat oil to medium heat and fry the bites until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
