    Amis's Note:

    I love these things. I always add extra cheese and I've also been known to stuff these with a mixture of meat & veggis added to the cheese. These make a great light lunch or a side dish for dinner. Posted for Zaar World Tour 05

      Put chiles on a hot grill or under the broiler, let skin blister and burn.

      Wrap chiles in a damp cloth or plastic bag for 20 minutes.

      The burned skin will flake off easily and the flesh will be slightly cooked by the steam.

      Stuff filling into the slits in the chiles.
    11. 11

      Beat egg whites until they are stiff, but not dry.
    14. 14
