Sunset magazine, 5/99

4 ozs cream-cheese -- (can use fat-free or Neufchâtel cream cheese)
2 tsps minced garlic
1/3 c minced green onions
3 Tbsps shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp lime juice
~3/4 lbs. fresh jalapeño chilies -- (14 or 15 equal-size), rinsed
2 lg egg whites
1 c cornflake crumbs

1. In a bowl, use a fork to blend cream cheese, garlic, onions, cheddar & lime juice.

2. Cut chilies (wear gloves?) in half lengthwise. With a knife, cut seed lump from beneath the stem inside each chili, leaving stem end in place (to form a cup). Pull out & discard veins. Fill chili halves equally w/cheese mixture, spreading surface smooth.

3. In a small bowl, whisk egg whites till slightly frothy. Put cornflake crumbs in another small bowl. Dip filled chili halves, 1 at a time, in egg whites, then roll in crumbs. Set chilies slightly apart on a 12X15" baking sheet, filling sheet.

4. Bake in 350° oven till crumbs are slightly darker brown & crisp, ~20 min. Serve hot or warm.
