- 3 tablespoons chopped Jalapeno chilies
- 1 (8-ounce) packaged grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
- 2 egg yolks

Mix chilies, cheeses, and egg yolks together until well blended; add peanuts. Form into 1-inch balls. Roll in bread crumbs; refrigerate. Cook 3 or 4 at a time in deep fryer, until they float in oil and desired browness is reached (about 2 minutes). Remove from oil and drain on absorbent paper. Repeat until all Cheese Balls are cooked.
