rellenos on my mind


S
omeone needs to write a love song about chile some kind of John Denver/Ricky Martin kind of jive - you know easy lyrics with a great dance beat because chile deserves it.



I made a sauce with a few chiles that I got from Marx Foods along with some chiles that I get from my family in New Mexico. It is a mix of Big Jim, Chimayo Red, organic Chipotle and Mulato in the blender with some water, Mexican oregano and garlic. This gets blended until feathery smooth and then warmed gently in a sauce pan on low heat to maintain the bright red color.



The roasted poblano peppers are stuffed with a mixture of ground beef, basmati rice, cheddar, mozzarella, asiago, fontina and romano cheeses and then basicly breaded with flour, egg and panko bread crumbs before frying in hot corn oil.



I make some kind relleno often and everytime they are different and everytime they are too delicious for words and everytime I want to eat everyone and everytime I only eat one, they are that good.

Lordy, lordy, you make a mean chile relleno. Five kinds of cheese, no less!

Tangled Noodle said...

5 peppers and 5 cheeses make a whole lotta delicious flavor! I'd be perfectly content with just one.

I don't even know what a chile relleno is, but I'm fine with 5 kinds of cheese. And your pictures are always pretty. I like your blue wall.

John Denver and Ricky Martin? That's like.... canned salsa meets angus steak...John is folk country and ricky is just annoying lol. Any way ....I have made this before..not with all your jazzy stuff but from what my husband says he loves it...I don't do the hot thing :( gives me heartburn..I guess I am dull blah...(goes off to do more boring things)

Never had relleno before...but I could easily tell from the picture and what you have described how flavourful this dish can be!

You are making me hungry for these rellenos and it's only breakfast time here. Oh well, why not....who says breakfast has to be bacon & eggs or cereal?

Those look so good I would sing a song about them (but nobody wants to hear me sing so I will eat them instead).
