Chile Rellenos are easily my favorite Mexican dish. I judge Mexican restaurants on their chile rellenos. My favorite types of chile rellenos are lightly breaded with lots of sauce. This recipe comes from Youtube it's in Spanish: youtube.com/watch?v=jALHe-bOx0w

How to Make Chile Relleno

Step-by-Step

  • 1Rinse and dry chiles. Roast on stove burners. Roast until skin is charred. Place in plastic bag/s for about 20 minutes.
  • 2Remove from bag/s and peel charred skin off. Slice a hole in each chile just large enough to remove the inside seeds and veins.
  • 3Place cheese slices into chiles. Use toothpicks to close up chiles.
  • 4Coat chiles with the flour mixed with chicken bouillon.
  • 5Separate egg whites from yolks. Use mixer to beat egg whites until fluffy. Add yolks and mix gently until well incorporated. Dip flour coated chiles into egg mixture.
  • 6Heat oil for frying. Oil is ready when wood spoon edges bubble and sizzle if placed in oil. Fry coated chiles in hot oil. Do not fry more than one or two at a time.
  • 7TOMATO SAUCE:
    boil whole tomatoes in water. Remove tomatoes skins (or use canned whole tomatoes). Blend in food processor/blender. Set aside.
  • 8Blend the oregano, garlic, and onion in food processor/blender. Add a little water to help blend.
  • 9Heat pan with oil and bring blended onion/garlic mixture to a boil. Add blended tomatoes. Add both types of bullion cubes (chicken and tomato) and salt. Bring to boil.
  • 10Before serving place fried chiles in sauce and let simmer for a few minutes to soak up flavors. Serve hot.
