Ingredients

1 small ancho pepper -- dried

24 large jalapeno chile pepper -- fresh

4 ounces ground turkey -- raw

3 cloves garlic -- minced

1 teaspoon cumin -- ground

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 ounce cream cheese

1 tablespoon cilantro -- fresh

2 each egg -- beaten

1/2 cup bread crumbs -- fine

Directions

Ancho; remove stem and seeds, soak for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make a cut in each jalapeno halfway through the stem end. Then make a slit down the length of pepper. This will make a T-shaped cut. Remove the seeds and membranes. In a large saucepan cook jalapenos in one cup water, uncovered, for 2 or 3 minutes or till just crisp-tender. Immediatey drain and rinse with cold water. Drain; set aside. Drain ancho and finely chop. In a large skillet cook turkey, garlic, cumin, salt, and chopped ancho pepper till turkey is no longer pink. Remove from heat; stir in cheese and cilantro. Using a small spoon, fill hollowed peppers with turkey mixture; lightly press peppers back into their original shapes. Dip stuffed peppers into beaten eggs; roll in bread crumbs to coat. (For a thicker, crunchier crust, give peppers a second coating of egg and bread crumbs. You'll need to increase the eggs to 4 and the bread crumbs to 1 cup.) Place on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in a 375* oven for 8 to 10 minutes or till heated through.

NOTES : Make-ahead directions: Prepare stuffed peppers as directed, but do not bake. Cover tightly in an airtight container and freeze up to 3 months. To serve, transfer frozen peppers to a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in a 350* oven for 25 minutes or till heated through.

I've come across so many recipes that say they are pizza sauce when it's really some variant of marinara that you would put on pasta...they are not the same.
