Recipe by Manami

Chiles rellenos (literally, stuffed chiles) are a classic Tex-Mex dish of roasted poblanos filled with cheese or meat, then battered and fried. For this version, Tim Love scoops succotash into poblanos, then grills the chiles rellenos in a cast-iron pot for smokiness. ;).From A Cowboy Chef's Fourth of July by Tim Love, published July 2010. Tim Love created this rub for large cuts of beef but he uses it from yucca chips to chiles rellenos."I like the fruity flavor" he says. If you can't find guajillos substitute smoky ancho powder."
