Easy Chili Rellenos with Beans

I don't have any fresh Poblano chilies so I used some canned California chilies I brought back from Ca. I whip up some egg whites and a few yolks four, salt and dip my chilies in the mixture with my hand, and quick fry them to a golden brown. Sometimes I stuff them with cheese or beans or both. Easy and fast. Make a quick sauce or not. So good just in a heated flour tortilla.

Lightly fold in the egg yolks

I have found that it is so much easier to use my hand when scooping the chili in the egg mixture

This is what you need.

1 or 2 Cans of whole green chiles or six fresh

5 eggs separated, use all the whites and 3 or 4 of the yolks

1 Tablespoon flour

pinch of salt

Cheese. I used mazarella

Homemade beans or canned ( mashed)

Oil for frying. You will need 1 inch of oil.

Separate the eggs. Mix the yokes with the flour and salt. Set aside.

If using canned chiles ( like I have to) drain . Stuff with a slice of cheese and with a knife put some beans inside chile. Roll in a little flour. No need for a toothpick the flour will glue it together. The flour helps the egg to stick. I think anyway. Lay the chile on a plate and continue with the rest of the chiles. Get your oil very hot. Be careful now. While your oil is heating up use a mixer (hand held) to beat the egg whites into soft peaks. Fold in the egg yokes. Now with your hands dip the cheese stuffed chiles one at a time into the egg fluff and roll it around to cover the whole chile. Gently lay the chile into the hot oil. I can do three at a time. Let cook until golden on the bottom and turn with tongs and spoon.

The Sauce

1 or 2 tomatoes cut into large pieces

1/2 Onion

2 Garlic Cloves diced

2 Jalapenos or 1 or 3, You pick

Olive Oil

1 teaspoon lime juice

1 Tablespoon Cilantro leave

1/2 Cup water

Put a small amount of Olive Oil in sauce pan ( thin layer)

Add onions, garlic and Jalapenos

Saute until Sauted. You know what I mean

Not browned.

Put the tomatoes in a blender or food processor and pulse a few times

add the sautéed garlic , onion, cilantro and pulse all together into a fine mixture

Pour into sauce pan with water and lime juice, add salt as needed and cook over low heat for a few minutes.
