Skillet Style Chile Rellenos on the Smoker

I make these as often as I can, but usually fry the chilies like this .

I was in a hurry this time so I made the skillet version and used the Memphis Pro smoker.
I blister and steam anaheim peppers (steam in a baggie)...



made my favorite filling of beef cheek meat, minced onions and asadero cheese...



added a good sprinkle of Simply Marvelous Season All....



whipped 8 egg whites, added 8 TBS of flour then folded in 8 beaten egg yolks...



stuffed the peeled, seeded peppers with the beef cheek, cheese mixture...





spread half of my batter into the skillet...



added the stuffed peppers...

topped with the remaining batter, seasoned with more SM Season All and

placed the skillet into the smoker at 325F...

The cook took about 45 minutes. I gave it the toothpick in the center test...

I parked the hot skillet on the old corner post..



The breeze was just right to torment my neighbor with the aroma. :)
The neighbor's ranch house in the clump of trees on the horizon...



Added sauce.....



I love these things and the skillet version saved me a lot of time! :)

This dish looks so fantastic that I am going to have to give it a go very soon.
Reading this at breakfast time is a hungry way to start the day!

Looks delicious Jeanie. I would never have thought to use the batter like that - you are so clever.

Jeannie
Sure does look yummy, and I bet it makes great left overs as well.

Looks delicious! I love the pic of the bob war (barbed wire) in the background. Looks a lot like our scenery up here in Washington. Great job cowgirl, as always.

Joe thanks! I like this version, it's a lot quicker but still tasty.
Hope winter is treatin' you well. :)

cowgirl said...

Hope your week is going well.
Thanks!

Hi Jim, thank you! I still haven't found time to post any gumbo recipes.. seems like I'm behind on my cooking. lol
Loved your idea though...
Thanks Jim!

cowgirl said...

Joe!! Good to see ya! I appreciate you stopping by my blog. :)
You must have ranch land too.. Bet it is beautiful up there.
Thanks again Joe, it's good to see you. :)

Yummerific, as usual.

I have boys with life-threatening food allergies, so I am always cataloging your recipes that are made without nuts, milk, or eggs so I can try them at home. Although I can't do this one, I can still drool from afar.

Bravo!

I have to admit I really like your idea of a hot dish.
Your cheeks to my lips!
Course I am waiting for you to do something with tongue so I can get into the really bad puns.

cowgirl said...

Rich I'm so sorry to hear about your boy's allergies. That must be hard to deal with...and scary too!

I appreciate you stopping by Rich...hope you are having a nice week.
Thanks! :)

cowgirl said...

lol Marc... have you been hanging out with Phubar?
Thanks for the laugh. :)

Rich said...

@cowgirl: not too scary or hard after 6 years of diligence. It's a habit now, but thanks for the concern.

I think that's one reason I like grilling so much: meat is always safe for the menu. In fact, yesterday I was looking at some of your older recipes and the 9 year-old came in and was really interested in your work. He's going to be our chef. He loves Food Network Magazine and anything that has to do with the kitchen. I tell him his cooking will make him a great husband.

Maybe you can dedicate a future recipe to my boy, Richie. He'd flip!

Mexican is one of my weak spots... Looks great!

cowgirl said...

Rich I'm glad to hear it's not an ordeal for you and family.... and you're welcome. :)

That's great about Richie!! I'd love to dedicate a recipe to him too. :)
Does he have a favorite as far as beef, pork, chicken or fish?
I think it is awesome he is interesting in cooking.
Please tell him "HI" for me! :)

Thanks again Rich!

cowgirl said...

Bill, mine too!! :) Thanks, hope you are having a great week! :)

Jeannie, the winter has been treating us so well that I think it was completely ignoring us. After last year's 60 inches of snow we have only had about four this year.

The snow shovels are gathering dust, which is a good thing!

Have a great weekend.

cowgirl said...

Wow Joe, That sounds unusual for your area. I've never been up your way but always thought that it stayed white throughout the winter.
I need to make a road trip someday and see for myself. :)

Thanks Joe! :)
