more rellenos

I didnt talk enough about my tasty chiles rellenos, and while I have made them before and I make them often nothing beats the ones I have now.



These were some plump italian peppers that I had roasted, peeled and stuffed with a mixture of ricotta, mozzarella, cheddar and crispy cooked bacon. I flour, egg, flour breaded them and fried them fast to keep a light golden color. These pictured are actually cold from the fridge waiting to be heated up for my lunch.



The chile sauce is the kicker in this case. I browned up some ground lamb, added 5 cloves of crushed garlic and several roasted, peeled and chopped New Mexico green chiles some chicken broth and let it simmer.



Well simmered chile poured over the rellenos with a handful of grape tomatoes makes this one handy lunch.

I really love rellenos, but unlike Pinknest, fried food is not my friend. I make baked rellenos instead. YUM!

Your rellenos look amazing!

I've got to go searching for chile's this weekend! Not sure about the lamb. I'll try mine with beef.

This look SO GOOD! You really do make me want to cook again, and I'm doing it more often. I cook when I have people over and do what is easy for myself.
