 Ingredients List

  • 8 Poblano peppers; fresh
  • 16 oz Chihuahua; or other white
  • -cheese
  • 16 oz Puff pastry sheets
  • 1 Egg; lightly beaten


WHOLE GREEN CHILES - Poblano or other mild pepper, about 7 inches (18cm)
long, roasted or grilled and softened in a bag, seeded and peeled (or
substitute canned). CHIHUAHUA, Monterey Jack, or other mild white Cheddar
cheese, shredded. PUFF PASTRY, ready-made phyllo leaves, or the 10x14"
sheet; the kind you can stack or roll to a 1/8-inch thickness.

Stuff chiles with cheese and close the seam by overlapping the sides

Roll out the pastry to a thickness of about 1/8-inch (3 mm). Place a chile
seam side down, onto the pastry and cut around it with a sharp knif,
allowing enough pastry to completely wrap the chile.

Wrap the hile, sealing the pastry edges with water. Repeat with remaining
chiles. Place on greased cookie sheet, seam side down, and allow to rest
for about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven 400F/200C/Gas 6. Brush pastry with egg and bake for 20
minutes. Reduce heat to 350F/180C/Gas 4 and make another 10 minutes or
until the pastry is golden grown. Serve with a fresh tomato salsa. About
570 each (65% cff)
