Chiles Rellenos Spoonbread

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Use whole freshly roasted poblano, Anaheim, or California chilies, or canned ones if fresh not available. This makes 8-12 stuffed chilies, and with the spoonbread will serve 4 people for a brunch or lunch, or side dish.

8-12 roasted poblanos (see recipe for roasting chilies)
1/2 pound Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened or olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground peppercorns
1 cup hot water
3 eggs, whisked
1/2 cup milk

First roast the chilies and allow to cool. Gently scrape the roasted skins off and remove the membrane and seeds, trying to keep the chili in shape. Cut the cheese into small finger shapes and tuck into each chili. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil or butter a 1 - 2 quart baking dish. In batter bowl whisk together the cornmeal, soft butter, baking powder, salt, pepper and hot water. Add the eggs and milk and blend well. Spread a thin layer of the batter into the baking dish, arrange the chilies over and then top with the remaining batter. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until set and browned a bit. Serve warm with fresh salsa or butter, etc.
