    Jalapeno Rellenos

    Source: Better Homes and Gardens


    20 jalapeno peppers
    3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (3 ounces)
    1/2 of an 8-ounce tub cream cheese with chive and onion
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup cornmeal
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup beer or milk
    Cooking oil or shortening for deep-fat frying
    Dairy sour cream (optional)
    Snipped chives (optional)


    1. Make a T-shape cut in the side of each pepper; remove seeds.
    2. For filling, combine shredded cheese, cream cheese, and cumin until blended. Pack about 2 teaspoons of the filling into each pepper.
    3. For batter, in a bowl combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Add beer or milk. Beat until smooth.
    4. In a heavy saucepan or deep-fat fryer heat 2 inches cooking oil or melted shortening to 375 degrees F. Dip stuffed peppers into batter. Fry several peppers at a time in hot fat, about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain; keep warm in a 300 degree F oven while frying remaining peppers. Serve with sour cream sprinkled with chives, if desired. Makes 20 servings.
