    Chiles Rellenos #2

  • 4 large green New Mexican chiles, roasted and eeled, stems left on
  • Cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack, cut in sticks
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 Tb water
  • 3 Tbs flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • flour

    Make a slit in the side of each chile and stuff the chiles with the cheese sticks. Dredge the chiles with the flour. Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Beat the yolks with the water, 3 Tbs flour, and salt untilthick and creamy. Fold the yolks into the whites.

    Dip the chiles in the mixture and fry in 2 to 3 inches of oil until they are a golden brown.

    No collection of New Mexican recipes could be complete without including one for stuffed green chiles. In late summer when the fresh crop of chile comes in, nothing tastes better. We stuff them with cheese, meat mixtures, or combinations of meats, dried fruits and nuts. We not only serve them whole, but also chopped and formed into balls or made into casseroles. Big Jims are the preferred chile for this recipe.

    Chiles Rellenos #3

  • Eight to ten 7-inch green chiles (Anaheims, poblanos, or Big Jims)*, roasted and peeled, seeds intact, stems attached (procedure follows)
  • 3/4 pound grated mild Cheddar (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • vegetable shortening for frying
  • 4 large egg yolks, beaten
  • 4 large egg whites, beaten until foamy
  • 1/4 pound grated sharp Cheddar (about 1 cup)

    Accompaniment: prepared salsa (optional) *available at Hispanic markets and some specialty foods shops

    Preheat broiler. Carefully cut a lengthwise slit in each chile and stuff with some Cheddar. Combine flour, salt, and pepper and dredge chiles.

    In a large saucepan, heat 1/2 inch shortening to 375F. on a deep-fat thermometer. Fold yolks into egg whites. Working with 2 chiles at a time, using a slotted spoon, dip chiles into eggs and fry, turning occasionally, until golden, no more than a couple of minutes. With a slotted spoon transfer chiles (careful they are delicate!) to paper towels to drain.

    Arrange chiles on a flameproof plate and sprinkle with sharp Cheddar. Broil chiles just long enough to melt cheese and serve immediately, accompanied by salsa if desired.

    TO ROAST PEPPERS:
    Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.
    Using a long-handled fork, char peppers over an open flame or on a rack set over an electric burner, turning, until skins are blackened, 4 to 6 minutes. (Alternatively, broil peppers on rack of a broiler pan under a preheat broiler about 2 inches from heat, turning every 5 minutes, 15 to 20 minutes, or until skins are blistered and charred.) Transfer peppers to a bowl and let stand, covered, until cool enough to handle. Keeping peppers whole, peel them, starting at blossom end. Cut off tops and discard seeds and ribs.
    Makes 8 to 10 stuffed chilies

    Doug's Chile Rellenos Casserole

  • 8 fire roasted anaheim chiles -- red or green
  • 6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese -- cut in fingers
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup flour -- or more
  • 1 teaspoon salt

    Red Aneheims have more flavor than green. Open the chiles, which have been de-seeded, and put in cheese fingers, can also add white onion slivers also at the same time, if desired. Lay the chiles in a casserole dish which will hold them(buttered of course) and cover with this mixture: in a blender add the eggs and the milk and salt, blend for a few seconds and then add the flour to make a batter,pour this over the stuffed chiles, or chiles rellenos which means just that! Bake about half an hour or longer until a toothpick comes out clean, in a 350F oven,uncovered.... let stand to set for about ten minutes and then serve with my previous Mexican rice!! This is truly an unforgetable dish, which will make the A list, Deb & Dan! Cheers, Doug in BC From: Doug Irvine <dougandmarie@home.com> CC: chile-heads@globalgarden.com 14 Aug 1998

    Marthas Chiles Rellenos

  • 1 Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 Whole chiles; fresh or cannd FOR EVERY 2 CHILES ALLOW:
  • 1 Egg;separated
  • 1 tb Flour
  • 1 Oil-1 1/2" deep in skillet

    RANCHERO SAUCE-SEE RECIPE:

    Cut the cheese into oblong pieces about an inch wide and 2 inches long, and place inside the peeled chiles. (see note following directions) Beat the eggwhites until stiff. Beat the yolks in a separate bowl, combining with the flour. Lightly fold the yolk mixture into the whites. Drop the peppers into the mixture, one by one. Heat the oil in the skillet to moderately hot, then picking the chiles up with a spoon, place them in the pan, and fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve piping hot, topped with Ranchero Sauce. (recipe to be posted) Note: If you are using fresh chiles, they must be peeled, as the batter will not adhere to the slick skins of the chiles. Do this by charring the chiles either over an open flame or under the broiler. Then steam them in a hot towel, and when they are cool enough to touch, remove the skins. I got this recipe from Martha Campbell, a mexican senorita who had married a friend of ours, and was our neighbor back in the '50s. She was an excellent cook, and gave me many fine recipes. Chile Rellenos are often made with other stuffings than cheese. I have other recipes where they are stuffed with meat, sardines, rice, and a combination of meat and vegetables. Martha often made this same recipe using bell peppers. Actually, any pepper and almost any stuffing can be used, according to your personal tastes. Whatever cheese or other stuffing you choose, they are delicious!
