- Preheat the broiler.
- Place the peppers on a baking sheet and broil until the skin is blistered and charred, turning to cook on all sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Place the charred peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap to cool for at least 10 minutes. Once cool, remove the skin easily with your hands.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the egg whites to stiff peaks. In a small bowl, mix 2 egg yolks with 1 tablespoon flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. (Reserve 2 remaining yolks for another use.). Place the remaining flour on a small plate. Mix one-third of the egg whites into the egg yolks, and then gently fold the egg yolk mixture into the remaining egg whites just until incorporated. In a third bowl, mix together the cheese and corn.
- Remove the seeds from the peppers by slicing them open along one side. Slice about two-thirds the length of the pepper, just long enough to remove the seeds with a small spoon. Stuff the peppers with the cheese mixture, squeezing the cheese gently so that it stays together.
- Heat 1 1/2 inches of oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Gently roll the peppers in the flour. (If the cheese and peppers are too warm and are falling apart, place in the freezer for 10 minutes). Coat the peppers in the egg batter by dunking and spooning the batter all around. Lift the pepper, and gently spoon off any excess batter hanging from the bottom. Place in the hot oil and fry until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Place on paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Serve with Chile Relleno Tomato Sauce.
- Add the olive oil to a medium saute pan over medium heat. Then add the onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the cumin, cayenne and garlic, and cook until fragrant, 1 minute longer. Add the chicken stock and the tomatoes with their juice and bring to a boil for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool a few minutes. Mix in the blender for 10 seconds (the sauce will not be smooth). Add the cilantro, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste and pulse just to blend.
CHILES RELLENOS WITH TOMATO SAUCE
Cooking Demo of this recipe can be found at: http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=244681 These are large, mild, green cooking chiles that have been roasted, cleaned, and peeled; filled and dipped in batter; and fried until puffed and golden. In Mexico they are served in a sauce, but I sometimes like to serve the sauce on the side. The egg batter may be either flat, fluffy, or extra fluffy. This recipe is right in the middle. If you want flatter chiles rellenos, just beat the eggs without separating them. For fluffier chiles rellenos, fold in one tablespoon flour for each egg in the recipe. This recipe is adapted from the California Culinary Academy.

Yield 6 chiles
Number Of Ingredients 12
- Place chiles on a comal or dry hot skillet and roast over high heat turning as skins blacken.
- Place chiles in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap allow to steam 15 minutes. While chiles are steaming, make tomato sauce.
- Tomato Sauce: Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add onion and garlic and cook only until the onion is soft. Add pureed tomatoes and chicken broth, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer over low heat while you finish the rest of the recipe.
- Remove charred peels from chiles.
- I use two different methods for removing the seeds depending on the type of chile. Anaheim- Slice off the top 1/2 inch of chile on the stem end (horizontally) removing the seed placenta and any loose seeds with your fingers. Poblano- Carefully slit each chile lengthwise along one side; remove seeds and veins (you may find it easier to use the paring knife to cut out the seeds and then remove them with your fingers).
- Fill each chile with several strips of cheese, roll in flour, and set aside.
- Beat egg whites until stiff; slightly beat yolks and fold into whites.
- Heat oil in a large skillet to 360F-400°F.
- Dip floured chile into the egg batter and spoon batter over to coat chile entirely.
- Slide chile into hot oil. Fry for a few minutes on underside while spooning hot oil over the top. Turn and cook again until both sides are golden. Remove to a paper towel to drain.
- You can serve the chiles now by placing 1/6 of the sauce on the plate and laying the chile on top and garnish with sour cream and cilantro or --.
- Carefully place the rellenos into the tomato sauce and simmer gently to heat thoroughly (about 15 minutes). Do not cook too long or batter will begin to break away.
- Serve with some of the sauce, and garnish with a dab of sour cream and a few cilantro leaves.
MIGAS-FILLED CHILE RELLENOS WITH PULLED CHICKEN, TOMATO SALSA AND CHIUHAHA SAUCE
- For the pulled chicken: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Season the chicken with the ancho chile powder, salt and pepper. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a medium high-sided ovenproof saute pan over high heat. Sear the chicken on both sides until golden brown. Add the chicken broth and barbecue sauce, bring to simmer, cover and cook in the oven until fork-tender, about 1 hour.
- Remove the chicken from the pan, loosely cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Reduce the cooking liquid in the pan over medium-high heat until about 1/2 cup remains. Shred the chicken with a fork into bite-size pieces. Return the chicken to the pan and toss to coat in the mixture. Reserve.
- For the chiles: Increase the oven to 375 degrees F. Toss the poblanos with the oil, salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast, turning occasionally, until blackened and soft, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap to steam. Once cool enough to handle, scrape off the skins. Make a long slash in one side of each poblano, from stem to tip. Carefully remove and discard the seeds. Reserve.
- For the tortillas: Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Heat the oil in a medium high-sided saute pan over medium heat until it begins to shimmer. Fry the 1/2-inch tortilla strips in batches, until just crisp, 20 to 30 seconds. Transfer with a slotted spoon to one side of the prepared baking sheet and season with salt. Fry the julienned tortillas and transfer with a slotted spoon to the other side of the baking sheet and season with salt. Reserve.
- For the cooked tomato salsa: Combine the tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic and 1/2 cup water in a blender and blend until smooth. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium heat until it just begins to shimmer. Add the pureed tomato mixture, oregano, salt and pepper and cook until the mixture thickens slightly and becomes a deep red, about 15 minutes. Reserve.
- For the migas-filled chile rellenos: Put the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until reduced by half; do not let it boil. Whisk in the cheese until melted; season with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm over very low heat.
- Melt the butter and oil in a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the jalapeno and cook for 1 minute. Add the eggs, season with salt and pepper and stir with a heat-proof rubber spatula until small curds form. Remove from the heat and fold in the pulled chicken, cilantro and 1/2-inch tortilla strips. Fill the roasted poblanos with the mixture.
- To serve, spoon some of the cooked tomato salsa onto 8 large dinner plates, top each with a chile relleno and drizzle with some of the cheese sauce. Garnish with the julienned tortillas and cilantro leaves.
CHILES RELLENOS IN TOMATO BROTH
- Brown onions in lard.
- Add tomatoes, cinnamon and pepper.
- Cook briskly until sauce becomes the consistency of a thick tomato sauce.
- Add stock, simmer partially covered for 45 minutes.
- Stuff chiles with cheese and hold together with skewers.
- Batter: Beat whites to stiff peaks with 1/2 tsp salt.
- Beat in yolks 2 at a time until well incorporated.
- Beat in flour.
- Dust chiles with flour and dip quickly into batter then lay in 350 degree oil.
- Baste tops with hot oil.
- When they are golden on bottom, turn over and cook other side.
- Drain. Once all chiles have cooled at least 5 minutes (they can sit up to 1 hour), put on sheet pan with parchment, slip out the skewer, and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
- To serve, place a pool of sauce in a bowl and top with a chile.
- Note: The easisest way to peel chiles for this dish is to deep fry in 350 degree oil for abou 45 seconds, remove, let cool and then peel--there is less chance of breaking the chile this way.
- The oil can then be used to cook the chiles.
CHEESE-STUFFED POBLANOS WITH TOMATO SAUCE (CHILES RELLENOS DE QUESO)
The heat and richness of this voluptuous dish is complemented by a mildly tangy tomato sauce. Choose the straightest chiles-they are easier to peel and stuff.

- Roast chiles:
- Roast chiles on their sides on racks of gas burners (1 or 2 per burner) over medium-high heat, turning with tongs, until skins are blistered and slightly charred, 4 to 6 minutes. (Or broil on rack of a broiler pan about 2 inches from heat.) Immediately transfer to a large bowl and cover, then let stand 20 minutes.
- Make tomato sauce while chiles stand:
- Purée all sauce ingredients except oil with 11/4 teaspoons salt in a blender until smooth, then strain through a medium-mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing on solids, then discarding them.
- Heat oil in a deep 12-inch heavy skillet or heatproof casserole (preferably one that can go to the table) over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Carefully pour in sauce and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes (sauce should still be thin). Season with salt.
- Stuff and fry chiles:
- Carefully rub off skins from chiles, leaving stems attached. Cut a slit lengthwise in each chile with kitchen shears, then carefully cut out seedpod (including attached ribs) without tearing chile (hotter chiles smell stronger when cut). Wipe chiles clean with a paper towel if necessary.
- Stuff chiles with cheese and enclose filling by overlapping slit slightly if possible, then transfer to a plate. (Use a toothpick to mark any hotter chiles if desired.)
- Heat 1/2 inch oil in another 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until it registers 360°F on thermometer.
- While oil heats, beat egg whites with 1/8 teaspoon salt using an electric mixer until they just hold stiff peaks. Whisk yolks with 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl, then gently fold in whites.
- Put flour in a fine-mesh sieve and dust chiles, turning them to lightly coat all sides.
- When oil is ready, dip chiles, 1 at a time (hold chile by stem), in egg coating, spooning it over chile to cover completely, then fry, turning once, until golden on all sides (lap oil over any lighter areas), 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer chiles with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
- Meanwhile, reheat sauce over low heat. Lay chiles in sauce to serve.
CHILI RELLENOS CASSEROLE
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- Evenly layer 1 can chile peppers in the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the Jack and Cheddar cheeses, and cover with remaining chile peppers.
- In a bowl, mix together the eggs, evaporated milk, and flour. If too thick, feel free to add 1/2 cup regular milk. Pour over the top of the chilies.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, pour tomato sauce evenly over the top, and continue baking another 15 minutes.
- Sprinkle with remaining Jack and Cheddar cheeses, pop under the broiler for a few minutes, and serve.

DIANA DáVILA'S CHILES RELLENOS
In her singular take on chiles rellenos, Diana Dávila crosses two classic Mexican preparations of the dish - chiles rellenos ahogados and chiles en nogada - to come up with her own remarkable variation. Roasted, peeled poblanos are stuffed with a ground meat picadillo spiked with apples, raisins, cider vinegar and brown sugar, then dunked in a feathery egg batter and fried until golden. Just before serving, those stuffed, fried chiles are bathed in a brothy tomato sauce lightened with carrot juice. It does take time to put all the elements together, but you won't regret a minute of it when you taste what might be the best chiles rellenos you've ever had: complex, sweet and spicy, and deeply brawny. At Mi Tocaya Antojería, her restaurant in Chicago, Ms. Dávila uses a combination of chopped duck confit and ground pork for the picadillo. But using all ground pork works equally well.

- Prepare the sauce: In a large bowl, toss plum and cherry tomatoes with 1 teaspoon salt. Use your hands to smush the tomatoes until their skins soften and break apart, then let sit for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in large pot or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, sliced chiles and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened but not browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and their liquid, bring to a simmer, and continue to simmer for 20 minutes.
- Stir in carrot juice, stock and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and simmer for another 20 minutes. The sauce should be thin and brothy. Use an immersion blender (or transfer mixture to a regular blender) and blend briefly; the mixture should still be somewhat chunky. Taste and season with more salt if necessary. (Sauce can be made up to 3 days ahead.)
- Make the filling: In a large skillet, heat the duck fat or oil over medium heat. Add the onion, apple, garlic and salt, and cook, stirring, until the apples and onions soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in raisins, vinegar and brown sugar, and cook until reduced to a glaze, about 4 minutes.
- Stir in pork and red-pepper flakes, and use a metal spoon to break up the pork into pieces. Cook until pork is no longer pink and much of the liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Raise the heat and let the pork take on a little color at the edges, 5 to 10 minutes longer. Remove from heat. (Filling can be made up to 3 days ahead.)
- Roast the poblanos: Heat the broiler, and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Arrange poblanos in an even layer, and broil until blackened on one side, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn over and blacken the other side, another 4 to 6 minutes, then transfer to a large heat-proof bowl. Cover and let steam until softened, 10 to 15 minutes.
- Peel the blackened skin off the poblanos, then cut a slit in one side of each pepper and remove seeds (keep the stems). Using paper towels to wipe away the skins and slippery seeds can help with this task.
- Stuff the poblanos with the filling, folding poblano seams together. Place flour on a plate, and gently roll stuffed peppers in flour to coat. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and freeze for 20 to 30 minutes. (Freezing is optional, but this will make them easier to fry.)
- Make the batter: Place egg yolks in a large bowl and beat until frothy. Place egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer and whip to stiff peaks. Fold the egg yolks into the whites, along with a pinch of salt.
- Heat 1 1/4 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat (it's hot enough when a drop of batter sizzles in the oil). When hot, dip one pepper by its stem into egg batter, then transfer to hot oil. Fry until golden on all sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining peppers, making sure not to crowd the pan. Transfer fried peppers as they cook to a wire rack placed over a rimmed baking sheet, and immediately sprinkle with salt.
- When all the peppers are fried, reheat sauce. Lower peppers into sauce and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, so the batter absorbs the sauce. Transfer to serving plates and spoon more sauce on top. Sprinkle with epazote, if using, and cilantro.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine first 7 ingredients in bowl. Season to taste with pepper. Pat chilies dry. Divide filling among chilies. Roll chilies up, enclosing filling. Transfer chilies to baking dish. Cover and bake until cheese mixture is very hot, about 15 minutes. Transfer chilies to plate. Ladle sauce around chilies. Garnish with cilantro and serve.

- Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and place the peppers onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Cook under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 8 to 10 minutes per side. When the peppers are about 80 percent blackened, place them a plastic bag, seal, and allow the peppers to steam as they cool, about 20 minutes. Once cool, remove the skins and discard. Cut a slit lengthwise into the side of each pepper, and remove seeds and veins. To reduce spiciness, rinse out any remaining seeds with water. Pat the peppers dry with paper towels.
- Mix together the shredded mozzarella, Monterey Jack, and Cheddar cheese in a bowl until thoroughly blended. Divide the cheese into 4 portions, and squeeze each portion lightly in your hands to make a cone shape. Insert a cone into the slit in each pepper, and pin the openings closed with toothpicks. Dredge each pepper in flour, dust off the excess, and place on a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper or waxed paper. Place the peppers in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
- To make sauce, blend the stewed tomatoes in a blender until pureed, and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, cook and stir for about 30 seconds, and pour in the pureed tomatoes, chicken broth, vinegar, oregano, cumin, black pepper, hot pepper sauce, and cinnamon. Reduce to medium-low, and simmer the sauce until reduced by half and thickened, about 20 minutes, stirring often.
- Preheat an oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C), and warm a platter in the oven.
- To make batter and finish the chiles rellenos, mix 1/3 cup flour with salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until the whites form stiff peaks. Lightly mix the egg yolk and flour-salt mixture into the egg whites to make a fluffy batter. Remove peppers from freezer and coat them in flour again; shake off excess flour, and dip each pepper into the egg batter, using a spoon to gently but completely coat each pepper with batter.
- Heat frying oil in a heavy cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers. Gently lay the coated peppers into the hot oil, and fry on both sides until the batter is golden brown and the cheese filling is hot, about 5 minutes per side. Remove peppers to warmed platter while you finish frying. To serve, ladle a generous spoonful of sauce onto plate, and place pepper on sauce. Serve peppers hot with a dollop of sour cream.
