transfer to a food processor. Add beans and pulse until combined well but
still coarse in texture. Let cool and mix in cheeses. Blister chiles over a
grill or open gas flame. Transfer to a bowl of ice and let cool, covered,
for 15 minutes. Peel carefully, keeping stems attached. Make a lengthwise
incision in each chile and remove seeds and membranes carefully. Rinse with
cold water and let dry.

Preheat oil in a deep-fryer to 375?F. In a bowl beat eggs and
half-and-half. Stuff chiles with turkey mixture and gently squeeze closed.
Dredge in flour and dip in egg wash. Dredge in cornmeal. Deep fry chiles
for 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with sauce.
