So Here is how you do it

Roasting peppers
Roasting peppers
  1. Fire up The BBQ and Roast those chilies just enough to peel the outer shiny skin off ( you can also use a torch like my Mother in law does).
  2. Once the skin is off Cut the tops off and de-seed them. and then slice them down one side
  3. Next, steam those suckers for a few mins (5 should do it) you want them soft but not falling apart.
  4. After steaming let them sit for a few mins on a paper town so there not water wet just naturally moist
  5. In a skillet, heat up your frying oil
  6. Get your eggs and separate the yolks from the whites.
  7. Place your slices of pepper jack Cheese in the peppers ( and whatever else you might want in them).
  8. Coat your peppers in flour ( doesn’t need to be caked just coated)
  9. Meringue

    In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the egg whites till they make a merangish foam till it can keep a peak. A tad bit of Cream of Tartar can help with the peaking

  10. Beet the egg yolks and GENTLY fold them into the egg white foam.
  11. Breading

    Dip your peppers in the egg mixture and place in the frying pan. fry until darker golden brown. (may have to flip them depending on how much oil you use)

  12. After frying place on a paper towel to soak up extra oil
  13. Now, get some plate, cover them pepper with some fixings and enjoy (I like to put on the Salsa Verde first).
