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!!!
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.
