Cooking Ingredients for Uncle Steve s Pop-N-Neros Recipe

12 Whole Habanero chile pepper;
-(orange), stemmed
1/2 lb Jack cheese; finely grated

2 tb Fresh cilantro; chopped fine
1 tb Bacon bits; (fresh cooked)
1 c Instant pancake mix
1/2 c Durum wheat flour
Peanut oil

Uncle Steve s Pop-N-Neros Preparation

Fry lean bacon to crispy and drain on paper towels. Great cheese fine. Remove stems and chop cilantro leaves fine. Grate horseradish root fine. Cut a small circular hole in the tops of peppers around the stem, approximately. 3/8 inch, and remove stem and seeds core. Mix cheese, horseradish, cilantro and bacon bits together. Stuff mixture into chilies. Put about a 1/2 inch or peanut oil in your favorite cast iron skillet and heat to high, but not smoking. Other oils are OK and using a deep fat fryer would work also. Mix a thin pancake batter using approximate. double the amount of water called for. Plunge stuffed habs into batter and then roll in durum flour. After all 12 are coated repeat for a second time. A lazy-man”s alternative for the batter is to cut phyllo dough and wrap each pepper. This method is not as messy, easier, faster and still taste great. Cook only 2-3 at a time to keep the oil hot. Cook each side for 30-45 seconds (flip gently with a fork), until golden tan, not brown. Serve hot. I find it hard to eat one whole Habanero Chile fresh and ripe off the plant. But I can usually eat 5-6 of these critters at a sitting. The seed removal, cooking and cheese seem to make the heat level more tolerable (at least for me). *Alternate filling ingredients: Horseradish can be over powering and kill the flavor of the other ingredients some times. You can leave it out or substitute cumin, celery seed, garlic etc. Experiment, it”s the fun part of cooking!… Or is it the eating? Enjoy!!
