Mild poblano peppers are the star of this Mexican food favorite, chiles rellenos. The peppers (look for darker colored poblanos for the richest flavor) are stuffed with cheese, dipped in egg and fried until the cheese is melted and the outside is crisp. They're a fiesta on a plate, especially when paired with a fresh, tomato-based sauce like the Food Network Magazine version above.
