Recipe: Tortang Sili (stuffed bell pepper)

We have had a number of posts on tortang talong (eggplant omelette) but I don’t think we have one yet on stuffed bell pepper omelettes. These are more like crabcakes except that we use minced pork instead of crab and encase them in a bell pepper shell for deep-frying. 113 more words

Yum.
