Grilled Chile Rellenos


6 large poblano chiles*

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped**

1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon cumin

2 (16 ounce) can MISSISSIPPI BELLE® Vegetarian Baked Beans, drained

1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce

12 ounces Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack, coarsely grated

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Cut poblano chilies in half lengthwise to create a boat for filling; scrape out seeds.*

HEAT olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Add onion, garlic, jalapenos, red bell pepper, cilantro and cumin and cook over medium heat until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in MISSISSIPPI BELLE® Vegetarian Baked Beans, hot sauce and 8 ounces cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the mixture into the hollowed chilies and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

PREHEAT grill to medium. Arrange chilies on grill away from heat. Cook until chilies are tender and cheese is browned and bubbling, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from grill and serve at once.



* May substitute with green bell peppers; cut pepper tops off, about 1/2 inch below the stem and scrape out insides.

** Leave seeds in for spicier filling.
