My Pepper Throwdown Entry with Q/View

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 



Hello everyone and congrats to the winners of the TD.  This was my first entry and I had such a blast doing it.  I am a HUGE fan of chilles rellenos, so I decided to do a play on an incredible dish.  I decided to get a few pablano peppers, some anaheims as well and smoke them both, deciding later which one I would enter into the TD. 


The ingredients for this dish are as follows:


Pablano Peppers (whole)

Queso Fresco




White Onion






Cooking Oil


So what I did is make up a blackbean-corn salsa the day before.  This allowed all of the flavors to get to know each other  pot.gif

I basically made a pico de gallo using tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalepenos and fresh cilantro.  I then added the blackbeans and corn and mixed well.







Here are the peppers after coming off of the smoker.  They smoked at 225 for 45 minutes.  I had some ribs on at the same time so that is why the 225 temp.  I think I would have gone a little lower temp-wise and left them on there longer had I not had the ribs on.




The way I wanted to build these was to core them and then cut in half.  I made a beer batter and then fried the halves until golden brown (nobody likes a soggy pepper).  Once out of the fryer, I stuffed the blackbean-corn salsa into the cavity.  I topped with queso fresco and then placed in the oven to melt.





And this was the final result.  I just diced the strawberries and mango evenly and tossed together with a little sugar.  This dish exceeded my expectations in taste and they were quickly consumed.  I made a total of 8 peppers (Pablano and Anaheims) making 16 halves.  I will definitely be doing this again in the future.  Thanks for having a look!!
