DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450*F. Remove stems, seeds, and veins from pepper. In a medium-size saucepan, bring a large amount of water to a boil. Add peppers and cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Drain peppers and invert onto paper towels. Cut the 4 ounces Colby-Monterey Jack cheese into pieces to fit inside pepper pieces. Place cheese inside pepper pieces. Arrange pepper pieces in a lightly greased 11"x7"x2" baking dish.
  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, and milk. Whish in the flour, cilantro, baking powder, salt, and cayenne. Pour egg mixture over pepper pieces.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and batter is puffed and golden. Sprinkle the 1/3 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese on top. Serve with the picante sauce.
