Chiles Relleños with Cheese, Dried Apricots, Pecans and Guajillo Chile Sauce
This outstanding recipe for chiles relleños—stuffed with two types of cheese, dried apricots, raisins, and toasted pecans—served with a spicy guajillo chile sauce, was developed by Chef Ben Berryhill.

Recipe Ingredients:
Chiles and Filling:
Oil for coating chiles
24 each large poblano chiles
16 ounces (about 4 cups) Wisconsin Jack cheese, grated
16 ounces (about 4 cups) Wisconsin Queso Blanco, grated
8 ounces (about. 1 1/2 cups) dried apricots, cut into very small cubes
8 ounces (about 1 1/2 cups) California raisins
8 ounces (about 1 cup) pecans, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped

Guajillo Chile Sauce:
2 pounds (about 16) ripe Roma tomatoes
2 pounds (about 32) tomatillos, husks removed
2 each large white onions, peeled and cut into eighths
12 garlic cloves, peeled
2 ounces (about 8) guajillo chiles or dried New Mexico red chiles, stemmed and seeded
2 cups water
1/2 cups cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon and teaspoon brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons salt

Garnishes:
As needed (about 3/4 cup) sour cream or crème fraîche
As needed (about 1/2 bunch) cilantro sprigs

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Chiles: Lightly oil the poblano chiles. Roast the chiles over an open flame or under a hot broiler until the skins are blistered and charred. Allow to cool at room temperature. Remove the skins and discard.
2 – With a small knife, make a slit lengthwise down the side of each chile to create a pocket. Gently cut the interior seed pod free from the base of the stem and remove the seeds. Discard the seeds.
3 – For Filling: In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the filling and mix well. Stuff equal portions of the filling into each poblano and set aside.
4 – For Guajillo Sauce: Preheat oven broiler. Combine the tomatoes, tomatillos, onions and garlic cloves on a baking pan just large enough to hold the ingredients in a single layer. Place the pan under the hot broiler and broil until the ingredients are lightly blistered and charred (approximately 15 to 20 minutes), turning the ingredients occasionally. Remove from oven and cool.
5 – In a dry skillet over medium heat, lightly toast the chiles. Transfer to a bowl, cover with water and soak for 15 to 20 minutes or until softened. Drain and discard the water.
6 – In a blender, combine the broiled ingredients with the softened chiles. Add the water and puree to form a coarse sauce (approximately 30 seconds). Transfer the puree to a sauce pan. Heat the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Keep warm.
7 – Just before serving, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
8 – For Final Preparation: Lightly charcoal grill or broil the stuffed poblano chiles just until the cheese begins to melt.
9 – Place a pool of guajillo sauce on each of 12 serving plates. Top with 2 chiles. If you wish, spoon additional guajillo sauce over each chile, drizzle with the sour cream or crème fraîche and garnish with cilantro sprigs.
Makes 12 servings.

Spud Soup
Soup can be a special meal that’s easy to make. This recipe is written especially for the young chef of the family. There is some slicing and dicing, so be sure there is adult supervision. Leftover soup makes a great Saturday lunch. Start the soup about 45 minutes before your meal.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 1/2 pounds Washington Yukon Gold or white potatoes
1 (49.5-ounce) can chicken broth
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme or oregano leaves
Salt and ground white or black pepper
1 (10-ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup chopped cooked chicken, turkey or fish, or drained canned salmon or tuna

Cooking Directions:
1 – Scrub the potatoes with a vegetable brush in the sink under cold running water.
2 – Peel the potatoes with a vegetable peeler, although you can leave the peels on if you wish.
3 – Using a big sharp knife (and with permission or help) on a cutting board, cut the potatoes in half the long way. Put the halves cut side down on the cutting board and cut each half lengthwise into 4 pieces. Then cut the long slices cross¬wise to make small (about 1-inch) pieces.
4 – Get out a large saucepan or pot and put the potatoes in the pot.
5 – Open the can of chicken broth and pour into the pot.
6 – Add the celery, onion and thyme or oregano and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
7 – Put the pot on the burner and turn it to High. When the broth starts to boil, turn the heat down to Medium Low so the broth is just barely bubbling.
8 – Cover the pot and set the timer for 30 minutes.
9 – Using potholders, carefully remove the cover and poke one of the pieces of potato with a long handled fork or a knife to be sure the potatoes are tender. If the potatoes aren’t yet tender, cook another 5 minutes.
10 – Open the package of frozen vegetables and carefully add them to the pot. Add the chicken and cover on the pot.
11 – Set the timer so the soup will simmer for 10 more minutes.
12 – Ladle out a small amount of soup into a bowl and taste. Add more salt and pepper if you think it is necessary.
13 – Soup can be a special meal that’s easy to make. This recipe is written especially for the young chef of the family. There is some slicing and dicing so be sure there is adult supervision. Leftover soup makes a great Saturday lunch. Start the soup about 45 minutes before your meal.
