Cut a 3-inch lengthwise slit in each chile pepper. Cut cheese into 6, even strips; stuff into chiles. 

Preheat soybean oil over medium high heat to 350° F in heavy frying pan. 

Combine milk, 1 cup flour, egg, baking powder, baking soda, salt and soybean oil in medium bowl; mix smooth. Roll each pepper in remaining flour and dip in batter to coat both sides.
