How to make it

  • Place whole peppers over an open flame or under the broiler.
  • Roast turning frequently until evenly black and blistered.
  • Remove from heat and place in a plastic bag to let sweat for awhile.
  • While the peppers are sweating place ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Cook stirring to crumble until evenly browned.
  • When beef is fully cooked add onion, garlic and tomato then cook for a few more minutes.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Remove peppers from bag and peel off burnt skin.
  • Run peppers under cool running water to rinse away any burnt pieces.
  • Make a small vertical slit in the side of the peppers and remove seeds and veins.
  • Stuff each pepper halfway with the ground beef mixture then fill the rest of the way with shredded cheese.
  • Close slits and secure with toothpicks.
  • Whip egg whites in a large glass or metal bowl until thick and fluffy.
  • Add egg yolks and whip for a minute to blend in.
  • Meanwhile heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium high heat.
  • Coat stuffed peppers with a light dusting of flour then dip them in the egg so they are fully covered.
  • Carefully place in hot oil and fry on both sides until golden.
  • Drain on paper towels then serve on a large platter.
