DIRECTIONS

  • Trim and discard stem ends of 8 jalapeño chiles (always wear rubber gloves when handling hot chiles). Scrape seeds and veins out of each chile with a thin-bladed knife.
  • Mash together queso fresco (fresh Mexican cheese), cilantro and mint leaves, and yellow onion. Stuff chiles with mixture, dividing it equally between them.
  • Sauté chiles in a lightly oiled nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, turning occasionally, until soft and all sides are browned, about 15 minutes.
