Brunch chile relleno (makes 8-10 servings)

By Vickie Chynoweth

Egg-stuffed relleno ingredients:

8 poblano peppers (Amador Farms)

8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

11 large eggs

1 sweet corn cut from cob (Sidhu Farms)

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

Cooking oil

Frijoles ingredients:

1 cup dried beans (Lopez Farms)

1/2 cup onion chopped (Lopez Farm)

4 pieces of thick sliced bacon, chopped

3 roasted Anaheim peppers (Amador Farms)

2 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cloves chopped garlic

Tortilla chips ingredients:

8 pre-made flour tortillas cut in wedges

Directions:

1. Roast clean poblano and Anaheim peppers. Place on cookie sheet, place in the oven under the broiler. When skin becomes charred, turn peppers. Repeat process until all sides are charred. Place in a glass bowl with a lid so that the peppers can sweat, 5-10 minutes. Carefully remove skin from peppers without tearing skin on poblanos. Set aside to cool.

2. Cut one slit in each poblano pepper. Add 1 tablespoon of shredded mozzarella cheese and corn to each pepper. Carefully add 1 egg, removed from shell, to slit in poblano.

3. In two separate bowls separate the 3 remaining eggs. With an electric mixer, beat egg whites with 1/2 teaspoon of salt until soft peaks form.

4. Beat egg yolks. While mixer is running, add egg yolks to egg whites in a steady stream.

5. Gently place each pepper in flour until lightly dusted. One at a time, place each lightly floured stuffed pepper in egg white mixture.

6. In desired pan, heat cooking oil filling 2 inches from the bottom of pan. Gently place peppers coated with egg mixture in hot oil making sure that the pepper is completely covered in oil. Cook for 7-10 minutes or until pepper is golden colored and egg is cooked as desired in pepper.
