Ancho chile stuffed with cheese – Mexican recipe

Ancho chiles are dried poblano chiles.

The combination of chili peppers and cheese is one of the most pleasing combinations for palates not accustomed to the intense spiciness of most chili peppers. The fat in the cheese (in this case, less-cured sheep cheese, but fresh goat cheese is fine too) forms a protective film around the tongue.
