1/2 cup milk

1 cup flour

1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs

1 bottle (24 oz.) Peanut Oil (or canola oil) for frying


PRESS 1 piece of VELVEETA in each pepper half. Dip peppers in milk, then in combined flour and bread crumbs, turning to evenly coat all sides. Repeat to coat each pepper twice. Place on baking sheet.
