How to make it

  • Preheat oven to broil. Place chilies on a broiler pan and under the broil to roast on all sides until skin is blistered and black. Remove and place in a bag to steam for 15 minutes. Remove from bag. Peel off skin, and GENTLY pull out stem. CAREFULLY cut chilies open along one side and clean out white veins and seeds.
  • Beat egg yolks until blended; set aside. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Slowly fold in egg yolks; set aside
  • Mix cheese, bread crumbs (if using), cumin and salt. Using one quarter of the cheese mixture for each chili, CAREFULLY AND GENTLY stuff each chili.
  • Heat about ½ inch of Canola oil in a deep 12 inch cast iron skillet.
  • Dredge chilies in flour and then dip in egg mixture. Place in hot oil and fry until golden brown on one side. Using 2 spatulas, VERY CAREFULLY turn and fry the other side (I cook two at a time) until golden on the other side.
  • Remove drain on a plate covered with paper towels.
  • Serve with sour cream and your favorite salsa.
  • **** You can use Anaheim Green Chilies and get more servings, but if you’re anything like me when you want a chili relleno you want a C H I L I R E L L E N O !!!

    Sounds great, and like you, I LOVE the flavor of chiles! Too often in a restaurant you get more breading than chile. I have a gas stove and usually place the chiles on a burner and roast them that way...then I put them in a paper bag so the steam will loosen the skins and then I peel them. I don't like to run them under water when peeling,as it takes away some of the flavor. Your recipe is a keeper!

    These sound really good. Thanks.
    Hacienda Del Sol restaurant in Duluth serves chili rellenos similar to these. They're served on a hot plate, covered with stewed tomatoes that have onions simmered in them. There are refried beans on one side, rice on the other, with shredded lettuce topped with chopped tomatoes and sour cream. As hard as I try to order something else, I never can.
