- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 cup fat-free evaporated milk

- Place chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet, and broil 10 minutes or until the chiles are blackened, turning occasionally. Place chiles in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 15 minutes. Peel chiles; cut in half lengthwise, discarding the seeds and membranes. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside.
