I don't know where the name Almondigas came from but I heard them calling it by that name. This is one of the many entries in the food fest in hubby's school where they won 2nd place in Tulya Con Carne in Milk. I think the group who cooked this one lack some style in presenting their delicacy because the pepper shouldn't be cracked, it should look like a banana pepper, green and firm. Anyway it's still yummy.
My friend used to cook this and a filling of cooked ground pork with spices are usually put inside the pepper and then deep fried. It's hot but not as hot as the chili pepper so it's still yummy to eat. We usually serve ours with dippings of mayonnaise with catsup mixed to taste like a salad dressing. Care to try it!
