  • 1/4

  • 1/2

    cup ketchup

  • 2

    tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2

    tablespoons honey

  • 1/3

    cup of water

  • Salt to taste

  • Olive oil

  • For Poppers:

  • 8

    large jalapeños

  • 1 1/2

    cups shredded mozzarella

  • 1/4

    cup green onions, sliced thin

  • 1/2

    cup flour

  • 9

    ounces cold light beer

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • 1/2

    teaspoon paprika

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    cup flour

  • 2

    cups or more of canola oil

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. On a lined baking sheet, add tomatoes, onions, garlic, Habanero, poblano, and jalapeños. Drizzle with a little oil and gently stir to coat evenly. When oven is ready, roast veggies for about 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. Remove from oven, cover with kitchen towel and set aside to cool. 2. Separate the jalapenos from the rest of the veggies, and set aside. Remove the blistered skin from the poblano and remove the stem and seeds from Habanero. In the food processor, add the tomatoes, onions, garlic, Habanero, and poblano pepper. Pulse several times until you achieve a rough chop, set aside. 3. In a medium saucepan add two tablespoons of oil and heat to medium heat. After a few minutes, add the tomato mixture from the blender, ketchup, W sauce, water, and honey. Stir well to combine, taste for salt. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Add the chopped cilantro and cook for a good 30 minutes to thicken the sauce. 4. In a medium bowl, add the flour, salt, baking soda, paprika and pepper. Whisk in the beer and continue whisking until most of the lumps are gone. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine the shredded cheese and green onions. In a medium pan add canola oil, enough to come up 1 inch on the side. Heat to medium/high heat. 5. Take one jalapeno at a time and carefully cut a T shape towards the top of pepper, but do not disturb the stem. With the small knife, gently cut the seeds and membranes, pull them out with your fingers. Fill each pepper carefully with cheese mixture; do not overstuff. Dredge in flour, and if oil is hot enough, holding on to the stem, dip into beer batter, using a small spoon to help you coat it evenly. Transfer to hot oil and cook for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown in color. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Serve with warm tomato jam, garnish with lemon wedges and cilantro. Serves 4 as an appetizer.
