- 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.
- Place a fried chile on each plate and pour the warm sauce over it. Serve immediately.

- 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.

BAKED CHILES RELLENOS
- Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
- Roast peppers on the top rack of the preheated oven until the skins are charred, about 5 minutes per side. Remove from the oven and allow to cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Set the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- While peppers are cooling, whisk eggs, flour, milk, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl until smooth. Slice the queso fresco into eight even rectangles, just shorter than the length of the peppers.
- Carefully peel off the waxy skin of the cooled peppers. Gently cut a slit down the length of the peppers and use a spoon to remove the seeds and membranes.
- Spread about 1/4 cup of the milk mixture on the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Wrap each pepper around a queso fresco rectangle. Place each chile/cheese wrap seam-side down in a single layer in the baking dish. Cover with remaining egg mixture. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the top.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the egg mixture has risen and the cheese is golden brown, about 30 minutes.

- 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.

- 1. Preheat the broiler and arrange peppers in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil until blackened, about 2–5 minutes, then use tongs to flip and broil the other side, about 2–5 more minutes. Cover the peppers with a clean kitchen towel to lightly steam them. Alternatively, place the peppers inside a sealed plastic bag or lidded dish to steam. Once the peppers have softened, about 10–15 minutes, use a paring knife to peel the skins off. Make a slit from the stem end of the pepper about halfway down, creating an opening just large enough to remove the core and seeds and to stuff the peppers. Use the paring knife to carefully remove the core, membranes, and seeds.
- 3. In a large bowl, whip egg whites to stiff peaks by hand or using an electric mixer. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks with ¼ cup flour to combine. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold yolk-flour mixture into whites. Place 1 cup flour on a plate or in a shallow bowl and lightly coat peppers in flour. Dip floured stuffed chiles in egg batter.
- 4. In a large sauté or frying pan, heat ½ inch vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Test the oil by dropping a tiny spoonful of batter into the oil. If it sizzles, the oil is ready. Fry chiles, seam-side down in hot oil until golden brown, about 2–4 minutes. Use tongs to flip chiles and fry until the other side is browned, about 2–4 more minutes. Blot excess oil with paper towels.

- While the sauce simmers, prepare the chiles for stuffing and fry them. First, you want to blister and peel the external portion of the skin from the poblano chiles. There are a number of ways in which you can roast or charm (Learn about HERE) or you can lay them in a heavy cast-iron pan and blister turning every two to three minutes. The peppers must be charred and blistered on the outside and the flesh on the inside should become soft. The pepper must be cooked but not burnt.
- Once the pepper is prepared for stuffing, divide the cheese among the peppers. Stuff the cheese wedges inside the peppers, being careful not to puncture or overstuff the peppers. You may need to cut the cheese as needed to put inside the peppers. Slightly fold the flap of chile over the other side of the slit to seal in the cheese.
- Begin by beating the egg whites and salt with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Make sure you do not beat them too much or they will become dry.

- Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with paper towels. Place a wire rack over paper towels. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with foil. Place whole poblano peppers in the foil-lined pan. Roast about 20 minutes or until peppers are charred. Transfer peppers to a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Let stand about 20 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Use a small knife to scrape away the charred skins (tip, p. xx). Cut a slit down one side of each pepper. Open each pepper and use a teaspoon to scrape out the seeds, leaving stems intact. Stuff each pepper with 2 oz. of the shredded cheese (about 1/2 cup).
- In a very large skillet heat 1/2 inch vegetable oil over medium-high. For batter, in a large bowl beat egg whites and salt with a mixer on medium-high until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). In another bowl beat egg yolks with the mixer on medium-high about 1 minute or until light in color and slightly thickened. Beat cornstarch into egg yolks. Gently fold egg yolk mixture into egg whites (batter will be light and airy). Pour batter into a large shallow dish.
- Preheat oven to 300°F. Gently place a filled pepper, seam side up, in the batter. Using a spoon, gently spoon batter over the top of the pepper until covered. Use one hand to hold onto the pepper stem and the other hand to place a large metal spatula under the coated pepper. Carefully transfer the coated pepper to the hot oil, seam side up. Fry, two at a time, about 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Using a slotted spoon, transfer fried peppers to the rack on the prepared baking sheet. Keep fried peppers warm in the oven while coating and cooking the remaining peppers. Serve with Tomato Broth.
