    Toby Jermain's Note:

    Central Market was celebrating the Hatch chile harvest and included the recipe on which this is based in their weekly flyer. Heat level of the chiles was HIGHLY variable, though flavor was too mild. Use Poblanos for better consistency and flavor

      I really enjoyed this recipe as a way to showcase fresh summer produce: poblanos for the heat lovers and bell peppers for the non-heat lovers, and fresh corn. I also significantly decreased the butter, cheese and sour cream: 1 tbsp butter, 1 oz cheese per chile, 1 tbsp sour cream per chile, omitted cheese topping.

      As a person who is watching cholesterol, I just could not bring myself to go with all of the butter and sour cream (ALTHOUGH, I promise to cook the origional recipie ONCE this year!) I sauteed the onions and garlic along with 3 Jalepeno's in 1 tsp olive oil, and mixed that with Safron rice instead of the corn. I omit the sour cream, roast the peppers, peel and stuff and cover with emental cheese. Have had 4 star reviews with this modification
