Chiles Rellenos image

Provided by Marcela Valladolid

Time 1h30m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

6 poblano chile peppers
5 plum tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped
1/2 small white onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
1 tablespoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican
3 large egg whites plus 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
Vegetable oil, for frying
All-purpose flour, for dredging


  • Char the chiles.
  • Turn a gas burner on high. Char the chiles on the burner grate, turning with tongs (Marcela is a pro and uses her hands!), until blackened all over. Or char the chiles under the broiler.
  • Let them soften.
  • Transfer the charred chiles to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag and close. Let stand 10 minutes. The chiles will steam in the bag, making them soft and easy to peel.
  • Remove the skin.
  • Gently rub the chiles with paper towels to remove as much skin as possible. It's okay if a few flecks remain-they'll add flavor, so don't rinse them off.
  • Open the chiles.
  • Using a paring knife, make a slit across the top of a chile just below the stem, leaving the stem intact. Starting from the middle of the slit, slice lengthwise down to the tip of the pepper (cut through only one layer). Open the chile like a book and pull out the seeds and inner membranes. You may need to use a paring knife to loosen the top of the seedpod. Repeat with the remaining chiles.
  • Prepare the sauce.
  • Puree the tomatoes, onion and garlic in a blender until smooth. Warm the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the tomato puree and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally; the sauce will be broth-y. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
  • Make the filling.
  • Place the cheese in a bowl, then add the oregano, crumbling and rubbing it with your fingers to release its flavor. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
  • Stuff the chiles.
  • Fill each chile with about 1/4 cup cheese mixture. Fold in the sides to cover the filling, then thread 2 toothpicks across the seam to form an X. You will probably need to make a second toothpick X to secure each chile so the filling doesn't leak out when you fry.
  • Mix the batter.
  • Beat the egg whites with a mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Add the egg yolk and beat 3 more minutes.
  • Batter and fry.
  • Heat about 1 inch vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F.
  • Dredge: Pour flour into a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper. One at a time, coat the stuffed chiles with the flour.
  • Batter: Holding each chile by the stem, lower it into the egg batter to cover completely. Let any excess batter drip off.
  • Fry: Add the chiles to the hot oil, 1 or 2 at a time; fry, flipping once with tongs, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
  • Eat!
  • Place a fried chile on each plate and pour the warm sauce over it. Serve immediately.


Authentic Chile Relleno Recipe image

This Authentic Chile Relleno Recipe takes you step-by-step on how to make this traditional Mexican dish of poblano peppers stuffed with cheese, dipped in egg batter and lightly fried. Serve with frijoles de olla, a crisp salad, and salsa ranchera-Ugh, so good!

Provided by Kate Ramos

Time 1h35m

Number Of Ingredients 15

6 large poblano peppers
10 ounces Queso Oaxaca or Monterey Jack or Mozzarella cheese, shredded (you should have about 4 cups shredded cheese)
6-12 fresh epazote leaves (optional)
4 eggs, separated
1 cup neutral oil like avocado oil, grapeseed oil or vegetable oil
1/2 cup all purpose flour
Kosher salt, for seasoning
4 large ripe tomatoes, cored
1/2 white onion
2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
2 serrano peppers
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon fresh Mexican oregano or 1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano or Mediterranean oregano
1 cup water
2 tablespoons neutral oil (whatever you use to fry the chiles is fine)


  • Char the poblanos: Char the peppers over the open flame of your gas stove, turning occasionally until all sides are blackened. Transfer to a heat proof bowl, cover and let cool to room temperature. If you don't have a gas stove you can also do this on a grill or under the broiler.
  • Make the Salsa Ranchera: Turn the broiler to high and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place tomatoes, onion, garlic, and serranos on the baking sheet and place under the broiler. Check every 2-3 minutes and turn the vegetables so the blacken on all sides. The garlic will cook much faster than the other vegetables. Remove each ingredient as it is done cooking. This should take anywhere from 9-15 minutes.
  • Blend the salsa ingredients. Remove the skin from the garlic and the stem and skin from the serranos. If you are sensitive to heat you can also remove the seeds of the serrano peppers too. Place all the blackened vegetables into a blender along with the 2 teaspoons of salt, the oregano, and the cup of water. Blend on high until smooth.
  • Fry the sauce. Heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a small Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add the sauce (careful it will splatter) and fry in the oil until the color deepens and the sauce is fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Cover and keep warm.
  • Peel the peppers. Carefully remove the blackened skin from the peppers. Try your best not to rip or break them. Get off as much as you can and rinse the rest off under running water.
  • Stuff the peppers. Cut a slit down the side of each pepper and remove the seeds with your fingers, again being careful not to rip or break them. Rinse out any remaining seeds under running water. Fill each pepper with 3/4 to 1/2 cup of shredded cheese depending on the size of the pepper-you will use all the cheese. Place 1-2 fresh epazote leaves inside each pepper if using. Seal closed by threading a toothpick through the opening.
  • Make the batter. Beat the egg whites in a bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment on medium-high until they are stiff. Turn the mixer to low and add the yolks one at a time until they are completely incorporated. Add a generous pinch of salt and mix that in as well.
  • Heat oil. Heat the cup of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Batter the chiles. Place flour in a pie plate or shallow baking dish. Season generously with salt. Coat the chiles, one at a time, in the flour, dusting off any excess then dip the chiles into the mixing bowl and cover with the egg batter. I like to use a small spatula to "paint" the batter onto the chiles until they are thoroughly coated.
  • Fry the chiles. Once the oil is hot (test by sticking a wooden chopstick in the oil, if it is immediately covered in bubbles the oil is ready) add the chiles, two at a time. Adjust the oil temperature as they are cooking. If the oil starts to smoke, turn it down if it becomes too cool, turn up the heat.
  • Flip the chiles. Once the chiles are golden brown on one side, flip using a fish spatula and cook until golden on that side. Keep flipping and frying until they are golden all over and they are warmed through, about 5-8 minutes.
  • Drain the chiles. Remove to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain the excess oil and sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining chiles. Then serve immediately with Salsa Ranchera.
  • Make in advance. The chiles keep great if you want to make them ahead. Keep them warm for up to an hour in a low (200°F) oven. Or make, let cool, and refrigerate then reheat in a 350°F oven until hot, about 15 minutes.

Chiles Rellenos (Authentic) image

A luscious mexican specialty! These are quite easy to prepare and better than what you find in a mexican restaurant. Chiles filled with savory cheese, crusted in a golden egg coating and topped with a light tomato sauce or enchilada sauce of your choice. I use canned red enchilada sauce to save time and it adds a little kick too. My family loves these! You can use 1 lg. 7 oz. can of whole green chiles but they are very soft and make it difficult to stuff.

Diana Dávila's Chiles Rellenos image

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.

Time 2h30m

Yield 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 27

10 plum tomatoes, diced
3 pints cherry tomatoes, preferably a mix of colors, halved
2 teaspoons kosher salt, more as needed
1/4 cup sunflower or grapeseed oil
1 large white onion, diced
10 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 to 3 Serrano chiles, thinly sliced
2 cups carrot juice
1 cup chicken stock, preferably homemade
2 tablespoons duck fat or sunflower oil
1/2 large white onion, diced
1 small Granny Smith apple, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 cup raisins
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 pound ground pork (or use a combination of ground pork and chopped duck confit)
1/8 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
8 poblano chiles
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
6 egg whites
Fine sea salt, as needed
Vegetable or canola oil, for frying
Epazote, for serving (optional)
Chopped cilantro, for serving


  • 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.

Time 2h20m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 23

4 large poblano peppers
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
¼ cup all-purpose flour for dredging
1 (14.5 ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
½ onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ½ cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano, crushed
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Cholula®)
⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
5 egg whites at room temperature
1 egg yolk, beaten
¼ cup all-purpose flour for dredging
1 cup oil for frying, or as needed
sour cream for garnish


  • 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.

Authentic Mexican Chili Rellenos image

This is an authentic Mexican recipe that has been handed down for generations in my family.

Provided by Kentucky Guera

Categories     World Cuisine Recipes     Latin American     Mexican

Time 1h

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 6

6 fresh Anaheim chile peppers
1 (8 ounce) package queso asadero (white Mexican cheese), cut into 3/4-inch thick strips
2 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon baking powder
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup vegetable shortening for frying


  • 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. Place peppers onto the prepared baking sheet, and cook under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, about 10 minutes. Turn the peppers often to blacken all sides. Place the blackened peppers into a bowl, and tightly seal with plastic wrap. Allow the peppers to steam as they cool, about 15 minutes.
  • Rinse cooled peppers under cold water to peel off the skins, and cut a slit along the long side of each pepper to remove the seeds and core. Rinse the peppers inside and out, and pat dry with paper towels. Stuff the peppers with strips of the cheese.
  • Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl with the baking powder. In a second metal bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until the whites form stiff peaks. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the yolk mixture. Place flour into a shallow bowl.
  • Heat the vegetable shortening in a skillet over medium heat. Roll each stuffed pepper in flour, tap off excess flour, and dip the peppers into the egg mixture to coat both sides. Gently lay the coated peppers into the hot shortening. Fry peppers until lightly golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes per side.

Chiles Rellenos image

Here's a Tex-Mex dish of great distinction, taken from the version served at the old El Jardin restaurant in Houston. The recipe offers extremely good instruction on roasting the peppers, information that will hold you in good stead elsewhere in this archive. And the resulting pockets of beef and cheese, fried in batter, make an excellent argument for the relevancy of stuffed peppers in general, and stuffed, fried ones in particular.

Categories     dinner, main course

Time 1h

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

4 large fresh poblano peppers
8 ounces lean ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 large tomato, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
5 slices bacon, diced
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil, or as needed
1 large carrot, finely chopped
1 medium all-purpose potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
4 large eggs, separated
1/2 cup all-purpose flour


  • Heat broiler. Place whole peppers on a flat pan and broil, turning frequently, until evenly black and blistered. Remove from heat and place in a plastic bag, twisted closed, for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, place a skillet over medium heat and add ground beef (no oil needed). Sauté until evenly brown, then add onion, garlic powder and tomato. Sauté until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a separate skillet cook strips of bacon until browned and crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to beef mixture. Return pan and bacon fat to medium-low heat, and add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the carrot and potato. Sauté until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat, spread meat mixture evenly across top, and set aside.
  • Remove peppers from bag. Using protective gloves or under cool running water, peel burnt skins. Carefully make a vertical slit in side of each pepper and remove any seeds or veins. Stuff peppers with ground beef mixture, overlapping slits and securing them with toothpicks.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add about 1/4 inch of oil. While oil heats, with an electric mixer whisk egg whites until thick and fluffy. Add egg yolks and whisk just until blended, about 30 seconds. Place flour in a wide shallow bowl. Coat each stuffed pepper with a thin layer of flour, then dip in egg mixture so that entire pepper is covered. Carefully place peppers in hot oil and fry on both sides until golden, about 2 minutes a side. Drain excess oil on paper towels, transfer to a warm platter, remove toothpicks, and serve immediately.

Chiles Rellenos Recipe by Tasty image

In this recipe, fresh pasilla chiles are roasted over an open flame and stuffed with queso fresco, then stewed in a rich, creamy white sauce for a decadent take on a classic Mexican dish.

Provided by Juliana Fregoso

Categories     Dinner

Time 1h3m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 8

6 fresh pasilla chiles
32 oz queso fresco, crumbled
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more as needed
2 jars mexican sour cream
1 cup whole milk
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
corn tortilla, warm, for serving


  • Turn a gas stovetop burner to high heat. Roast the pasilla chiles, 2 at a time, directly over the flame, turning occasionally to char evenly, until the skin has brown spots all over, 6-8 minutes. (Alternatively, preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Toss the chiles with about 1 tablespoon of oil, place on a baking sheet, and roast for about 35 minutes, or until the skin is beginning to char and pull away from the flesh.)
  • Transfer the chiles to a medium bowl and cover with a plate. Steam for 30 minutes.
  • Once the chiles have steamed, use gloves to peel off the charred skin. Use a paring knife or kitchen shears to cut a vertical opening in each pepper, being careful not to cut all the way through. Gently remove the seeds.
  • Stuff each chile with the queso fresco.
  • Add enough vegetable oil to a large pot to just cover the bottom. Turn the heat to medium-high and add the peppers to the pot in a single layer with the opening face up. When the oil is hot and the peppers begin to sizzle, add the Mexican sour cream, milk, and any remaining queso fresco. Bring the cream sauce to a boil, occasionally moving the chiles around but not turning them all the way over.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until the sauce thickens slightly. Season with the pepper and salt.
  • Serve immediately with warm corn tortillas alongside.
  • Enjoy!

Traditional Chiles Rellenos image

I've had this recipe posted for a long time and it's gotten great reviews as is so I don't want to change anything to how it's posted, but I don't make it the same way anymore. After frying the stuffed and battered peppers I put them in a pan, then pour enchilada sauce over them. Next I sprinkle them with cheese and then bake them til the cheese is melted. SOOOO yummy. Also a tip for anyone who is worried about their peppers holding together: Use toothpicks to hold the peppers closed before dipping them in the egg batter. I set the peppers in the batter and spoon it over the top so that I can handle them carefully. Take the toothpicks out before baking or serving.

Categories     Peppers

Time 55m

Yield 6 stuffed chiles, 3-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

6 whole poblano peppers
1/2 lb cheese, thinly sliced (I use oaxaca but queso fresco, chihuaha, or other Mexican melting cheese would work too)
1/4 cup flour
6 whole raw eggs (separated)
1/2 cup flour
2 cups salsa verde (comes in a small can)
2 cups home style mexican salsa (also comes in a small can)
1 cup corn oil


  • Rinse the chiles.
  • Preheat your oven to broil.
  • Place the chiles in a 9 x 14 baking dish and place on the top shelf of your oven. (I use a cookie sheet.).
  • Watch and listen closely. When the skins start to make popping sounds and to char and turn black in places, take the chiles out and flip them over. Be sure and use a potholder so you don't burn your hands!
  • When both sides are fairly evenly charred, remove them from the oven. You don't want them to be black all over, it is important that you do not over cook them.
  • Wrap each chile in a moist paper towel or place in a sealed plastic bag to steam.
  • After a few minutes, check them. Once the skin comes off easily, peel each chile. Try not to tear into the actual chile.
  • Cut a slit almost the full length of each chile. Make a small "t" across the top, by the stem. Pull out fibers and seeds (this is where the heat is) and replace with a slice of cheese. I use a tea spoon for this to gently scrape/scoop the seeds out. It�s ok if you miss a few. You can set these aside, for a few minutes or a few hours if you put them in the refrigerator.
  • Whip the egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer, until stiff peaks have formed.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet until a drop of water sizzles when dropped into the pan.
  • Beat the egg yolks with one tablespoon flour and salt. Mix the yolks into egg whites and stir until you have a thick paste.
  • Roll the chiles in 1/4 cup flour and dip each one in the egg batter. Coat evenly (I'm still not very good at this step, but try not to coat the chiles too thickly). Fry, seam side down on both sides until golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain.
  • Meanwhile, heat the salsa in a medium saucepan (either one or some of each). Place one or two rellenos on each plate and pour salsa over them. Serve them immediately! I recommend serving them with rice, beans, and tortillas. Sour cream is also good on these.

Mom Pat's Chiles Rellenos image

Mom makes these. They are not hot and make a simple dinner. These are good for lent or if you're going meatless for any reason. It's hard explaining a simple way of doing this. I hope I did it for you. Nothing is measured; we just do it so I'm figuring on my fingers and toes the measurements,lol.
