    By Carole Kotkin co-author of MMMMiami--Tempting Tropical Tastes for Home Cooks Everywhere

    Select flat-bottomed peppers that can stand upright.
    4 large red bell peppers
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 jalapeno chilies, seeded and minced
    1 leek (white part and 1" of green), sliced
    2 teaspoons fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 tablespoon fresh basil
    1/4 cup cornmeal
    3/4 cup milk
    1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
    3 egg yolks
    salt and pepper to taste
    5 egg whites

    Slice tops off peppers. Finely chop tops, then remove core and seeds. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, melt butter and saute chopped pepper,
    chilies and leek until tender, about 3 minutes. Add oregano, basil and polenta and cook for 1 minute. Add milk and stir. Bring mixture to a boil
    and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for a few minutes before adding cheese and egg yolks. Stir until incorporated. Season with
    salt and pepper. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Stir 1/4 egg whites into vegetable mixture, then stir resulting mixture into remaining
    egg whites. Place peppers in a 8 inch square baking pan and spoon filling evenly into each. They can be refrigerated at this point for several hours.
    Bake in a 375 degree oven for 35 minutes until brown and puffed. Serves 4 (or 8 if you cut the peppers in half).
