My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 medium white onions, diced
- 3 tablespoons lard
- 2 (28 ounce) cans tomatoes with juice, undrained and pureed
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 8 poblano peppers, peeled, seeded and slit
- 1 lb monterey jack cheese
- vegetable oil (for frying)
- 48 inches skewers
- 1Brown onions in lard.
- 2Add tomatoes, cinnamon and pepper.
- 3Cook briskly until sauce becomes the consistency of a thick tomato sauce.
- 4Add stock, simmer partially covered for 45 minutes.
- 5Stuff chiles with cheese and hold together with skewers.
- 6Batter: Beat whites to stiff peaks with 1/2 tsp salt.
- 7Beat in yolks 2 at a time until well incorporated.
- 8Beat in flour.
- 9Dust chiles with flour and dip quickly into batter then lay in 350 degree oil.
- 10Baste tops with hot oil.
- 11When they are golden on bottom, turn over and cook other side.
- 12Drain. Once all chiles have cooled at least 5 minutes (they can sit up to 1 hour), put on sheet pan with parchment, slip out the skewer, and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
- 13To serve, place a pool of sauce in a bowl and top with a chile.
- 14Note: The easisest way to peel chiles for this dish is to deep fry in 350 degree oil for abou 45 seconds, remove, let cool and then peel--there is less chance of breaking the chile this way.
- 15The oil can then be used to cook the chiles.
