my love of rellenos was the driving force in my attempt to prepare it on my own. it was a labor of love-so much easier to order at a restaurant! i think it is important to share that i doubted an edible outcome due to being nervous about each step in the process. despite handling the peppers with utmost gentility after charring, i thought the little rips i accidentally made in the peppers would destroy the pepper's ability to hold in the cheese during fry phase (not so). i also have had bad luck with egg whites and folding in ingredients in the past, so i thought the batter would fail as well (NOT SO-best fluffy stuff ever). i did toothpick the peppers after stuffing them to hold 'em together and i also froze them prior to battering and frying. the sauce had great flavor with the cinnamon, but i will go easier on the black pepper next time. so happy i didn't give up on this and have developed some cooking confidence. thanks for the step by step and tips everyone!
