This is a recipe from Carlos Murphys restaurant in Tucson. It is a southwestern dish that is delicious, and not as hot as you might fear:Date: 94-01-17 15:01:24 EST From: MR GOFF 1) Remove the seeds from the peppers without breaking it open. This can be done with a paring knife. Wash the pepper out well. Do not touch your eyes! 2) Fill the inside of the peppers with cream cheese. 3) Roll them around on paper towel to dry them off, and dip them in the egg. When they are covered with egg, roll them in the bread crumbs until covered. Be careful so the breading doesnt come off. 4) Fry the iguana eggs in the oil until golden-brown.
