  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4-5 jalapeรฑos, finely chopped (remove seeds for less heat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Ranch dressing or your favorite dipping sauce


  1. Prepare the Cheese Mixture: In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and 4-5 finely chopped jalapeรฑos. Add 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  2. Form the Bites: Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture and roll it into a ball. Repeat with the remaining mixture and place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
  3. Set Up the Breading Station: Prepare three shallow bowls: one with 1 cup of all-purpose flour, one with 2 beaten eggs, and one with 1 cup of breadcrumbs.
  4. Bread the Bites: Remove the cheese balls from the freezer. Dredge each ball in the flour, shaking off any excess. Dip it into the beaten eggs, then coat it thoroughly with breadcrumbs. Repeat for all the cheese balls.
  5. Heat the Oil: In a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350ยฐF (175ยฐC).
  6. Fry the Bites: Fry the breaded cheese balls in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the skillet. Fry for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bites and drain on paper towels.
  7. Serve: Serve the Rattlesnake Bites hot with ranch dressing or your favorite dipping sauce.
