I just love the flavor of fresh chili peppers and I love chili rellenoes. This is something I put together using both items in an easy-to-eat item. I have also roasted the chilis and peeled them before stuffing them and putting them in the burrito. But the fresh chili gives it a different texture and flavor. Enjoy.
