Stuffed Anaheims and Spanish Rice

These were almost hard for me to make... I love rellenos and wanted to dunk these babies in batter and fry em, but I resisted.

For the filling I minced some green onion, grated a bit of asadero cheese and shredded a little smoked chuck.



I blistered, peeled and seeded the anaheims, then stuffed and wrapped them in bacon...



onto the smoker...




while the peppers smoked I cooked minced onion, garlic and bell pepper in oil...




added rice...




used azafran mainly for color...




added chicken stock, paprika, cayenne, tomatoes...then checked for salt and pepper. I let this simmer until the rice absorbed the broth and spices.







.










These were sooooo good! Some of the peppers were kinda spicy but I loved them.



Best thing......... I made so many of them, they lasted all weekend. :)

Absolutely gorgeous! You continue to impress! I like that you use the spices from the inexpensive ethnic market.

I think last time I made these I used a sausage mixture in the stuffing. Heck, you could use anything. :)

Thank you Pid!
That's called a Frogmat. I got it from the Big Poppa Smokers site.
This was the first time I've used it...it works nice. Keeps delicate food from falling through the grate and food doesn't stick to it.

It's for indirect heat only, no direct flame underneath.

I think it will be great for fish too!

Thanks again Pid! :)
