Hubby was kind enough to help roast peppers this year, so I had to make his favorite. Normally, I cook these in a cast iron skill, but since the deep fryer was already out, I decided to use it instead. Probably wasn't one of my better ideas. I made a bigger mess than it was worth and they didn't fry up as nice as they would in a skillet. The only thing that I don't like about this recipe is the cheddar cheese. In my opinion, rellenos are best with a Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack if you like extra heat. What I do like about this recipe is the batter. It's a heavy, pancake like batter. As soon as it hits the skillet, it puffs and seals quickly so the cheese doesn't ooze all over which is one of the tricky and often frustrating aspects of making rellenos.
