Simple and good. Another of Michael's Mexican dishes that we love. He fixes this mostly during the summer when our banana peppers are giving us so much produce.
- 6 wax peppers (hot hungarian yellow or other banana pepper)
- 3 ounces monterey jack cheese
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg whites (throw away the yolks, save them for something very rich, or give them to the dog)
- 3 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 6 tablespoons sour cream
- Cut top of pepper one quarter way around, then slit downward to tip.
- Remove seeds.
- Blanch and simmer in water for about 20 minutes.
- Cut 6 chunks of Monteray Jack cheese and insert into peppers.
- Beat eggs.
- Put butter in skillet on medium heat, pour in small amount of egg mixture when butter starts to get hot.
- When egg mixture begins to firm, place filled pepper on one half of circle of batter and flip batter over the pepper as the eggs cook.
- Do this for all 6 peppers.
- Remove to 2 or 3 small microwavable plates.
- Top with grated Mozzarella cheese and a tablespoon of sour cream.
- Microwave for about one minute, or until cheese melts.
