This was very tasty! The only thing I didn't like was how my peppers' skin hardened - I'm not sure why this happened. I used anaheim peppers from our garden and followed the recipe, except I used vegan Daiya cheddar, powdered egg substitute, and plain soymilk. My boyfriend loved it but I couldn't get over the hard pepper skin pieces that kept getting stuck in my teeth...

Easy and so good! DH had another piece after dessert. I quadrupled this and made it with 14 anaheim chilis I had from the garden. I doubled the cheese on top and put it into the oven for 5 minutes more to melt. I liked baking them, since it's a lot better than frying, which is so high calorie and such a production that I don't make them often. These I will make often. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Easy to make, but I think the extra work to make the individual rellenos and to bake and peel the poblanos is worth it. Boiling them results in a canned-chile texture, and the egg doesn't stick to the chiles.
