	Chile Rellenos

	8 Green Anaheim or New Mexico chiles(7-8" long)
	2 tbs Cooking oil
	1/2 cup Chopped onion
	1 tbs Garlic, minced
	1 lb Lean beef, pork butt, or chorizo, diced to 1/4" pieces
	1/4 cup Raisins, chopped
	1/4 cup Walnuts, chopped fine
	1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon

	Put the chiles on a sheet pan and place them under the broiler of 
	the oven.

 	over to cover.
	Allow to set for 1/2 hour, uncover, and remove the skins.

 	and set aside.
	Heat a heavy skillet and add the cooking oil; saute onions and

	Cook, stirring frequently until the liquid has nearly evaporated;
 	salt and pepper to taste.
	Allow to cool enough to handle.
	Spoon the meat mixture into the prepared chiles and place two 
	stuffed chiles into each of 4 greased individual casserole dishes.
	Melt the butter in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat.
