Here's a recipe by Annette Reddell Hegen from a recipe card produced by the Texas Agricultural Extension Service.

Cut peppers in half lengthwise. Discard pulp and seeds and rinse carefully.

In a large mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except breading mixture. Stuff pepper halves with crab mixture and press stuffing around pepper. Set peppers aside.

To prepare breading mixture: Place 2 cups cracker meal in a flat pan. In a separate pan, mix 1 cup mils, 2 eggs and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Dip peppers in egg mixture, then in cracker meal. Repeat procedure.

Deep fry at 365 degrees (F) until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
