shredded smoked gouda
shredded sharp cheddar
jalapeños, stemmed, cut lengthwise, and with the seeds removed

Make the filling by combining the first seven ingredients.
Stuff the jalapeño halves with the filling and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
Set up three bowls. In the first, mix together flour with a pinch of salt and a few cracks of pepper. In the second, beat the eggs with the milk, a pinch of salt, and a few cracks of pepper. In the third, place the cheeto crumbs.
Coat the stuffed peppers in flour, the egg mixture, and then the cheeto crumbs. Deep fry at 365º F for two minutes each or bake at 350º F for 30 minutes.
