Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Prepare a large bowl of ice water.
  3. Place poblano peppers on a baking sheet. Broil until skin bubbles and areas of burned skin appear. Dip peppers into boiling water for about 30 seconds, then place immediately into ice water. When peppers are chilled, remove skin. Slit peppers lengthwise and remove veins and seeds.
  4. Stuff each pepper with 1/4 the cotija cheese and secure pepper openings closed with toothpicks. Place flour into a shallow bowl and dip each pepper in the flour; set aside for coating to set.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the tip of the peak formed by the egg whites should stand up. Gently whisk egg yolks into whites. Dip floured peppers into egg mixture to coat.
  7. Fry peppers in the hot oil until browned and the cheese has melted, flipping once, about 5 minutes per side.

I have to say I didn't think that the cotija cheese would melt well, so I did some with Cotija and some with Oaxaca Cheese. Heat oven to 200 - line baking sheet with foil or parchment. I put the beaten egg white mixture in a shallow pie pan for dipping. I fried 2 at a time, once brown and crispy, place on the prepared baking sheet and into the oven while the next batch is prepared. Both types of cheese were GREAT - I would make these again in a heart beat!

Very good - but I am very partial to our restaurant's recipe. I could not find cotija cheese, so used queso blanco instead. I may make these again, but probably will just go to the restaurant for them.
