Chiles Rellenos de San Joaguin 


10 poblano peppers, halved lengthwise, stems and seeds removed

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 small onion, thinly sliced

1 cup diced fresh tomatoes

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

2 tablespoons sour cream

12 ounces cotija cheese


Adjust oven rack to its topmost position and set oven to broil.

Place chiles skin side up on a baking sheet, and broil until skins blister, about 5 minutes. Be careful not to let them burn. Remove chiles from the oven and place in a glass bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let chiles steam until cool. Remove and discard the skins.

Preheat oven to bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in sliced onions, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until onions and tomatoes achieve a sauce-like consistency, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. Season with cumin, stir briefly, then stir in the sour cream; remove from heat.

To assemble the chiles rellenos: Slice cheese into 20 long rectangles (or sticks) 1/4-inch thick and approximately as long as the chiles. Roll each cheese rectangle into a chile half. Place rolled chiles into a baking dish and top with the tomato sauce. Crumble any extra cheese on top of the sauce. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the sauce is bubbly.
