Chile Rellenos

6-12+ 'LARGE' chiles
several traditional varieties to choose from, the most commonly available is the Pablano.
You can also use Hatch chiles (aka Anaheim) which are very popular, or even in pinch a (gasp!) Bell Pepper.

6-12+ Eggs
one egg for each chile works out perfectly.

Cheese
enough sliced or shredded to fill the chiles.
a good soft melting cheese is a must.
A few good Mexican varieties are usually found in most large grocers or Mexican markets, Asadero, Manchengo or Oaxaca are great.

Meat (optional)
shredded beef/chicken or crumbled Chorizo sausage.

2 cups Flour

Roast chiles over high heat/direct flame to char and loosen skin.
Place in plastic bag to help steam the skin loose and make them easier to peel.
Peel, then you can make a slit in the side and either de-seed them or not.
Wash, dry and then you can fill with cheese (meat is an option).
Dust stuffed chiles in flour and set aside.
I use toothpicks to hold the chiles closed.

Separate whites from yolks, whip whites till stiff, then whisk yolks into whites.
Please note, if you get even one speck of yolk in the whites they will not whip stiff, and you need to start all over again.

Heat oil in skillet or fryer, in a skillet you need enough oil to cover at least half the chile.

Dip chile in egg batter, cover completely, fry till golden brown.

Easy Chile Sauce
1 can Rotel
1/2 stick of butter
1c finely chopped onion
1/2c finely chopped bell pepper
1 heaping tsp minced garlic
1T chile powder
1/2t cumin
Salt to taste.

Saute onion, bell pepper and garlic and seasonings in butter.
Add Rotel and simmer a few minutes.
Then I puree it in a blender and return to the pot and a low simmer.

Looks Tasty! One of our favorites to make in the discada. Unfortunately the large peppers this year looked horrible in the stores. So we haven't made many of our favorite pepper dishes.

Wow!
LOL, talk about a slow burning fuse, this was posted almost two months back and all the sudden, BAM!

If you mean classic Mexican dishes, yeah, I've plenty.
Search my threads, pretty sure I've put up some of my best recipes for Green Chicken Enchiladas, Mexican rice, Frijoles/Frijoles refritos and more.

Indeed good sir, indeed.

Twas tasty, try my recipe and you'll agree... Thanks for the Point.

Quite interesting that you know what Discada cooking is, not many do unless they live in a Border State or have Mexican heritage/family/friends.
I love a traditional discada grill of various meats, but my favorite is ham cooked right next to a good chorizo so the ham infuses with the chorizo flavor, YUMMY!

Chili man you put out some good foodies.....love rellenos. You make them same way i do so must be doing something right there...lol....but always had trouble with the sauce....going to have to remember how you made yours and hopefully that will take care of that problem...cause the sauce is really about half of the dish.

Separate whites from yolks, whip whites till stiff, then whisk yolks into whites.

Remember to separate each egg individually into a bowl, one speck of broken yolk in the whites ruins them, they will not beat stiff.

Thanks Justin,
I was wishing I'd found some ox-tails to make tacos to go with them.
Your thread had me drooling.
