Baked Hot Pepper Fries
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1-1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
5-10 hot peppers (Pablano, Hungarian Hot Wax, Jalapeno, etc)
Preheat oven to 375F.
Beat the eggs in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.
Place dry bread crumbs on a medium plate, season with seasoning salt, chili powder and a dash of ground cumin; set aside.
Slice the tops off the tops of the peppers. Using your knife or a spoon, scoop out the seeds and veins.
Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices.
Dip the pepper strips in egg. Coat the strips with bread crumbs.
Arrange the breaded pepper strips on a lightly greased baking sheet. (I line my baking sheet with aluminum foil to make clean-up easier.) Bake at 375F for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with Ranch or Bleu Cheese Dressing, Fresh Tomato Salsa, voila!
