Stuffed Green Chili's

Martha Robbins


I love chili rellenos but needed to eat a little healthier and less fried food.. if you like lots of flavor you will love this... just beware that sometimes your peppers might be hotter than you realize.

6 large
ears of corn, cut off the cob
2 Tbsp
canola oil
1 medium

1On a grill or under a broiler, char the green peppers til bubbled all over then put in a large bowl and cover with plastic, let them steam for a few minutes til the skins come off easily. Peel them and then slit one side and scoop out the seeds. Set aside.
2Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. When the oil starts to ripple add the corn, onion and jalopeno. Toss til veggies start to char on the edges (about 4-5 minutes). Reduce the heat to med and then add the garlic, tomatoes, and dry seasonings. Cook 2 more minutes then turn off the heat and sprinkle lime juice over the veggies.
3Place the green chili's in a baking dish and stuff each with as much veggie mix as they will hold. (mound whatever is left on top) Top each pepper with about 1/4 cup each of the cheese.
4Place under broiler til cheese is melted and slightly charred. Serve with your favorite rice.
