Chiles Rellenos

Something for the vegetarians in your group--stuffed peppers. Since these are grilled, not deep-fried, they're a healthier version of the Tex-Mex classic.

  • Yield: Makes 6 servings


  • 6 none poblano chiles or 4 small green bell peppers
  • 1 none 15 1/4-ounce can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 none 8-ounce package shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder


Cut a slit lengthwise in each chile and carefully scoop out the seeds and ribs. In a medium bowl, combine the beans, cheese, raisins, salsa, and chili powder. Stuff the peppers with the filling.

Light a charcoal grill and allow the coals to burn until covered with gray ash or heat a gas grill to medium. Place peppers on grill and cook, turning frequently, until they are soft and the cheese has melted.
