Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Coat the chilies with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast them for 15 minutes. Let cool. Make a slit down the middle of the chilies. Stuff them with the cheese. Dip each chile in the eggs, then roll in flour. Repeat. Bring the canola oil up to a high heat. Fry battered chiles ’til golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Place some of the rice in each flour tortilla, top with one of the chilies. Fold like a burrito. Serve with the salsa verde.
