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.

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Quinoa and Chile Casserole

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is – Quinoa and Chile Casserole. Featuring one of my favorite Grains that I use from time to time, Quinoa. The recipe comes from the CooksRecipes website which has a huge selection of recipes to please all tastes, diets, and cuisines so check it out today. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Quinoa and Chile Casserole
Although quinoa (keen-wah) is new to the American market, it was a staple of the ancient peoples of Peru, who called it ‘the mother grain’. Hailed as the ‘super-grain of the future’, quinoa contains more protein than any other grain, and is considered a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids. Quinoa can be used in much the same way as rice is used.

Recipe Ingredients:
2/3 cup pine nuts
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil – divided use
1 cup quinoa*
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped oven-dried tomatoes (or sun-dried)
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 to 3 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 (4-ounce) cans whole green chiles
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Cooking Directions:
1 – Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large (4 to 5-quart) saucepan over medium heat; add pine nuts and stir until lightly toasted. Remove from pan and set aside.
2 – Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil into same pan and add the quinoa. Stir constantly over medium-high heat until quinoa gives off a toasted aroma, about 3 minutes.
3 – Add tomatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until quinoa is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in pine nuts, green onions and cilantro. Season with vinegar, salt and pepper. Cover and let stand.
4 – Drain chiles and split in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Arrange half the chiles in a 2-quart casserole (12x8x2-inch). Spread quinoa mixture evenly over chiles. Top with remaining chiles and sprinkle with the cheese.
5 – Bake in a 375°F (190°C) oven for 20 minutes or until hot and cheese has melted.

Makes 6 servings.
