Nandito na naman tayo sa sili. Talagang starring sa kusina ko ang siling pansigang 🙂
I dunno if I can rightfully claim na naimbento ko ang appetizer na ‘to. Baka naman meron nang ganito dati, iba lang ang pangalan at hindi ko alam.
Eh kasi, we had burrito for lunch tapos ang daming tirang cooked ground beef at saka cheese. When I checked my fridge, ang dami ring sili. Tapos meron pa akong lumpia wrapper. Nag-isip ang Ella kung anong magagawa sa mga tira-tirang ingredients. Nang araw na ‘yon, ipinanganak ang “dynamite lumpia”.
It was surprisingly good, naubos namin ang 20 pieces of lumpia. Next time you have a small party, this will be a hit, pramis.
Warning: Dynamite lumpia is not for the faint of heart…or stomach?
We will need:
20 pieces or more New Mexico cayenne pepper a.k.a siling pansigang
1 cup ground beef cooked with buritto or taco seasoning (or plain cooked ground beef)
matchstick slices of cheddar cheese
oil for deep frying
Soak sili in salted water for 15 minutes. Slice lengthwise and remove the seeds. (If you want them spicy, leave the pith and some seeds but be warned, maanghang talaga ito)
Stuff with cheese
Stuff with cooked ground beef. This is optional. Okey rin siya kung cheese lang.
Wrap each stuffed sili in lumpia wrapper. I haven’t tried it but I think you can also use large molo wrapper para mas madali ang pagbalot.
Dapat nakalabas ang tangkay para ‘yon ang hahawakan. Deep fry until golden brown. Place cooked lumpia in paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Dip in garlic white sauce or ranch dressing
