Thats right I said stuff it! How many times do I have to tell you that 'chile relleno' means 'stuffed pepper' I know you eat something like this at least every once in a while - dont you? I know my friend Stacy does and hers look really good and you know I have because I post about them like every few weeks. Well this time around I did not fry them - you heard me right - I baked them instead, a stuffed pepper like maybe you are more accustomed to.
I had some poblano peppers some red, peppers and some green peppers so I was stuffing like a fool and I stuffed anything that got near me though the odd thing here is 'peppers' of the 'pepper' variety are not my favorite- as much as I like chile I dont like the sweetness of these too much. I made a delicous meat and 3 cheese stuffing, the meats being a ground beef and pork combo with secret seasonings and the cheeses were, aged gouda, cheddar and ricotta, Tavolini maybe you should stop reading now, I said it and I will say it again -ricotta, sorry but I had to.
The stuffing came out great, the cheeses were oozy, the chiles had bite and the crunch from the bread crumb topping balanced it all out, not to mention the lake of red chile they swam in.
