How to make it

  • 1. Prepare the beer batter and let stand at least 20 minutes
  • 2. Roast & peel the chilies (if using fresh)
  • 3. Cut cold cheese into long thin pieces, 2 inches long by 1/8-inch square.
  • 4. Cut a tiny slit toward the top of the roasted, peeled chile and carefully slide in pieces of the cheese until the chile is just filled with cheese. (Handle with care so you don’t tear the chile.)
  • 5. Drain stuffed chiles on paper towels before dipping in batter.
  • 6. In a deep med. frying pan heat oil to 350 degrees F.
  • 7. Dip chiles, one at a time, into batter and carefully slide them into the hot oil, do not allow chilies to touch each other. Once they are golden brown, turn the chiles over and fry the other side. The second side will brown more quickly.
  • 8. Keep warm in oven until all chiles are all fried. Drain fried chiles on paper towels.
  • 9. Place chilies on the plate and surround with a bit of shaved lettuce & thin slices of bell pepper, top with a dab of sour cream. Serve with refried beans, steamed corn tortillas & a cold beer.

    I'd love to try these but have never seen New Mexico green chiles in N.E...Would Poblanos be an adequate substitution?
