Real Chiles Rellenos
This recipe makes chiles rellenos, the traditional Mexican dish of fried peppers stuffed with cheese. To simplify dinner preparation, stuff the peppers in advance and freeze. The next day, remove from the freezer and fry.

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.
