Notes & Tips

  • Wide green chiles are much easier to fill. If possible, select wider peppers in the store.
  • To keep the moisture down, I “lazy seed” my tomatoes – while I am chopping the tomatoes, I remove the seeds that are easy to remove. I do not properly seed them by removing all seeds and then setting them aside on paper towels to drain off excess liquid.
