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.

How to Make Stuffed Green Chili's

Step-by-Step

  • 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.
