Ingredients

  • 30 pieces finger chili peppers (siling haba)
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 30 pieces spring roll wrappers
  • canola oil

Instructions

  • With a small knife, make a slit across the length of one side of each chili peppers from the stem down to the tip. Work carefully to keep stems intact. 
  • Using a teaspoon, gently scrape the inside of the chili pepper to remove seeds and pith. Rinse under cold running water to remove any stray seeds. Drain well and pat dry.
  • In a bowl, combine ground pork, garlic, green onions, salt, and pepper to taste. Using a teaspoon, gently stuff each chili pepper with pork mixture.
  • Separate lumpia wrappers and lay on a flat work surface. On a flat working surface, position the spring roll in a diamond pattern.
  • Tuck and fold the right pointed end of the wrapper inward and place the stuffed pepper horizontally with stem outside of the wrapper.
  • Fold the left and bottom sides over the chili pepper and roll tightly to fully enclose. Dab the seam with water and gently press to completely seal.
  • In a pan over medium heat, heat about 2 inches deep of oil. Add wrapped peppers in a single layer and cook, turning as needed, for about 7 to 10 minutes or until outside is golden and crisp and meat is cooked.
  • Remove from the pan and drain on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Serve hot with sweet and sour sauce or spicy vinegar dip.

Notes

  • Do not overfill the peppers to keep them from breaking apart and ensure adequate meat filling cooking.
  • Adjust heat if wrappers are browning before meat filling is fully cooked.
