This recipe is for using Jalapeno chilies that can range from very hot to medium. You can use milder sweet peppers instead to get similar flavor with a lot less heat. But try these hot numbers, you'll love them.

INGREDIENTS:

JALAPENO PEPPERS, AS MANY AS YOU NEED

WATER TO MAKE THE BATTER

 LOW PROTEIN MOZZARELLA  CHEESE AS MUCH AS YOU NEED ( 1 TSP PER JALAPENO)

1 TSP TACO SEASONING

1 cup TC multi-baking mix

OIL FOR FRYING

1/2  CUP  LOW PROTEIN BREAD CRUMBS

 

1 Tbs oil

 

1/2 TSP SALT

 

Use gloves when you handle Jalapenos. Wash and dry the peppers. Slit through the pepper to almost in half but leave the two pieces still attached at the stalk end. Remove the seeds and the white membrane from the inside of the pepper. Discard them.

Combine the multi-baking mix, 1 tablespoon oil and bread crumbs in a bowl, add enough cold water and make it into a batter that resembles pancake batter that is thick enough to adhere to the vegetable to fry.

Heat the oil in a pan to 375 F. Insert a small piece of the cheese that could fit in the pepper and holding the pepper closed dip it into the breadcrumb batter. The batter should completely coat the pepper and seal it. Add to the hot oil carefully, doing the same for a few more of the fritters until the frying pan could hold no more. Turn the fritters once to cook on the other side, cooking on each side until golden. Drain on several thicknesses of absorbent paper towels. Serve with strawberry sauce.

The batter coats 10 fritters.

The nutrient values don't include that of the Low protein cheese or the peppers.
