CHILES RELLENOS (STUFFED CHILES)

Ingredients

  • 8 to 10 7-inch green chiles (Anaheims, poblanos), roasted and peeled
  • 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)
  • Prepared salsa (optional)

Preparation

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.
