Roasted Green Chilis

Mi mama always made this delicious staple to eat with frijoles de la olla. The suero (whey) has made this recipe uniquely ours and gives the green chile a creamy tang and perfect saltiness. We especially love this dish as part of our Thanksgiving menu. In fact, she made this dish for us for our last Thanksgiving celebration with her, two months before she passed away. I roasted the green chiles, and she peeled off the skins. She sat in her wheelchair at the kitchen table, where she always loved to be, giving instructions. I hope your family enjoys this as much as we do!
