This is such a quick and easy dinner to put together. I didn't have whole chiles so I used chopped green chilis which made them pretty tough to roll up and then dredge in the flour. The flavor was out of this world though so I will be making these again using the whole chilis as stated in the recipe. This recipe is also really easy to reduce or multiply for a crowd!
