This blog should probably be named "rellenos" since I make them so often, and what does that mean? You guessed it, I made them again. Chiles rellenos has got to be one of my most favorite things to eat and to share with others. I have been asked to make rellenos for people for years and years now and I have a few different ways I make them. Sometimes I make a fluffy egg white batter other times I do the egg wash flour routine, it all depends on my mood. It really doesnt matter much how they get cooked as much as that they get cooked and quick.
Serve them up however you want.
Since I was already knee deep in hot oil why not throw some crabcakes onto the mix. Crabcakes? Sure crabcakes, I got some crabmeat nice and cheap in chinatown so why not.
These ugly little babies have a nice gloppy dressing of red chile mayo to kick up the sweetness of the crab and they are served on a 'slaw' of broccoli and carrot. The same 'slaw' that surrounds the relleno. I say 'slaw' becasue it isnt really a true slaw as it has no dressing. I dont like the dressing that usually goes with slaw so I have mine either dry or with a splash of lime. So there you have it, two totally unrelated dishes held together with 'slaw' and chile - how do like them apples?
