Ready in 45 minutes
This recipe was taught to me more than 25 years ago when I worked in this little authentic Mexican Restaurant in Southern Oregon, in the town of Rogue River. The Restaurant was called Poor Hose's. The Head chef, Noemi Dallman was from Lake Jalisco, Chupala Mexico. She brough some of the finest most authentic recipes I have ever experienced and to this day when i eat out I tend to compare everything to that time and those recipes. It is very hard to find such wonderful food anymore that I feel compares to hers. The stuff we see around us anymore is so over worked and over commercialized, it has lost something special. This chile relleno is sure to leave you wanting more.. I promise you if you follow it carefully .. you will see that I am right. I am going to slowly add more and more of these recipes that were handed down to me , I have had them stuck away for many years and thought it was time to share them with the world. Enjoy!!!
"I used a blend of cheddar amd cotija cheeses and it came out pretty good. Jack would have been better. I also used fresh pasilla and anaheim peppers that i roasred myself which, in my opinion, is the only way to go
Sauce is fantastic! "

1 Peppers: combine both grated cheeses and take small amounts and roll together to make " BULLETS"
2 If using fresh peppers, Roast them and take the skin off and snip stem end off and " hollow " out,
if using canned peppers that are already cleaned out and hollow, at this point stuff the peppers well with the bullet of
cheese and set aside , do this for all of them.
3 Lightly roll or coat the peppers in flour.
4 beat your egg whits till stiff ( like Merangue) then fold the yolks back into the whites
5 Fold in 2 tbsp flour.

sanarcc 3 years agoIf using fresh peppers,You can roast them and take the skin off and snip stem end off and ' hollow ' out, and FREEZE them in zip lock bags. They freeze really well! Just place them neatly in bags quart or gallon size. Buy them when they are in season summer, early fall and roast them -some stores will even roast them for you -like my mom says just keep an eye they do not over roast them for you. when you get home you just peel them and put them in the freezer so you have them all year round!
gnnoles 3 years agoMy wife is the fan and despite me screwing up a couple of seasonings, she still loved it! Next time, I'll start Carey's rice, then start the sauce and peppers roasting at the same time. Now, got a good Chimi recipe? Thanks!

pjstrub 4 years agoI'll try anything - had never eaten these, but my husband has many times and stated they are the best ever!! Followed your recipe to the 'tee'. I think there is enough batter to do several more chiles. Could these be made ahead to a point? Looking forward to more of your recipes - thank you!
