Ingredients
  • 2  large poblano peppers or green sweet peppers (8 ounces)
  • 1  cup  shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers (4 ounces)
  • 3  beaten eggs
  • 1/4  cup  milk
  • 1/3  cup  all-purpose flour

  • 3/4  cup  shredded cheddar cheese (3 ounces)

1. Quarter the peppers and remove stems, seeds, and veins. Immerse peppers into boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain. Invert on paper towels to drain well. Place half the peppers in a well-greased 1-1/2-quart casserole. Top with half of the shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat layers.

2. In a medium mixing bowl combine eggs and milk. Add flour, baking powder, red pepper, and salt. Beat until smooth. Pour egg mixture over peppers.

3. Bake, uncovered, in a 450 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until set. Sprinkle with the shredded cheddar cheese. Let stand about 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with picante sauce and sour cream. Makes 4 main-dish servings.
