Ranch Chiles Rellenos with Ancho Chile Salsa

January/February 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (18 votes)

Dark green, shiny poblano chiles are the traditional choice for chiles rellenos. They have great flavor, but may be too spicy for some tastes. Anaheim chiles are reliably mild substitutes. You can stuff chiles with almost anything: cheese, shrimp, smoked fish, tuna and sour cream, grilled vegetables or crabmeat. For a larger crowd, the recipe can be doubled. Serve the chiles rellenos with beans and rice. Adapted from Cooking with the Seasons at Rancho La Puerta: Recipes from the World-Famous Spa (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 2008) by Deborah Szekely and Deborah M. Schneider with Chef Jesùs González, Chef of La Cocina Que Canta.

One of our family favorites!

This is an absolute keeper recipe. The sauce is complex and earthy - don't use store-bought! It is some work - would recommend doubling for leftovers - absolutely a fabulous recipe!! Mine never look neat, hard to keep cheese in - who cares? They taste incredible!! My kids (teens) beg for these! Amy in Vermont

Delish!

These were YUMMY!! Turned out great. I didn't make the ancho chile salsa, but used store-bought salsa. Still was wonderful!

The rellenos were light and perfect., the ancho sauce a bit too hot and smoky for me. Easy rellenos, without the guilt.
