Cooking Directions:

For peppers: Toss Anaheim peppers in oil. Broil, turning occasionally, until blistered. Place in stainless steel bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and cool until cool enough to handle.

Peel the peppers. Cut a slit down the length of the peppers. Carefully remove the seeds and vein. Set aside.

For filling: Whisk eggs and 2 eggs yolks until foamy. Add ricotta and mix thoroughly. With a rubber spatula, fold in the brie. Fold in the remaining filling ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Chill until very cold.

For batter: Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, combine egg yolks and beer. Add to dry ingredients and stir gently to combine.

Whip egg whites to medium peak. Fold in to batter mixture. Let rest one hour.

For sauce: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Final Preparation: Fill each pepper with cheese filling. Pour batter into flat container.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 350ºF. Dip each pepper in the batter, turning to coat completely. Drop peppers a few at a time into hot oil and deep fry for 4-6 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Pour 2 ounces sauce on each of 12 serving plates. Place two peppers on sauce. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and asiago. Serve immediately.
