Looking for a Hatch New Mexico Chile Relleno Recipe

I was in Hatch or T or C New Mexico a few years ago and had a very unusual but GREAT chile relleno and have been unbale to find a recipe or anything like it.
So I was hoping some one might have a recipe for them or a family member that makes them that would be willing to share the recipe :)

It wan't the typical chile relleno, it was a little bigger than a golf ball, had copped hatch chiles and ground beef and it was deep fried.
The only thing the waitress told me was that it was a New Mexico chile relleno and it was a "meatball" type chile relleno that was dipped in egg or egg whites and deep fried in oil.
I have went back to T or C and Hatch and went to all the places I remember and none of them had this type of chile relleno on the menu, so the restaurant is either gone or moved.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me recreate the OUTSTANDING chile relleno recipe.
