You have probably tried stuffing vegetables before, so stuffed dried chiles are no news. However, this combination of ingredients for stuffing is a bit unusual. On top of that, I will be stuffing dried chiles, not fresh ones. If you are not into spicy foods, you can swap chiles with regular sweet (dried) bell peppers.
Drying chiles is more than just a way to preserve their flavor. They have a distinctive flavor, so they are used in a different way than fresh chiles. In fact, the dried and fresh version of the same species often have different names. For some of the species, you would never guess it is essentially the same chile. More about dried chiles here.
There are numerous ways to use dried chiles (or dried peppers). You can dice or turn them into powder and add as seasoning to different dishes or sauces. Or you can do as I am to – let them soak in hot water to reconstitute and stuff them.
Stuffing I am about to present can be used for different dishes. It is simple and quickly made and you can easily adjust it to your taste. You can substitute or omit herbs and spices I used for this delicious dish.
