I really enjoyed these chili rellenos!. I used canned whole chilies. These fried up nice and crispy, and were served with salsa and refried beans and Spanish rice.Thanks for a yummy recipe!

Not exactly what I was expecting, but not a bad chili relleno. I was trying to stay away from the traditional egg batter breading (I prefer a crunchier coating like those made at Chuy's Restaurant rather than the softer beaten egg white breading) and these sounded like they might fit the bill. I'm actually surprised at how similar they ended up being to the traditional.....but without the process of beating egg whites and folding in the yolk. The corn meal added an interesting, slightly sweet twist to the breading but overall, very traditional as far as texture and taste. Probably will not make again, but only because I'm looking for a non traditional (crunchy) recipe. Thanks for posting!

This was great. I made it for my husband because he likes chili rellenos, and found out I liked it too! I added some 505 green chili salsa on top with some chedder cheese microwaved it until the cheese melted and he loved it. Way easier than the other recipe I tried for it. Thanks

This is the first Chili Rellenos recipe I have made where I actually loved the flavor! Awesome! I used 6 deseeded and blanched poblano peppers and they turned out great, except because they were a bit big they were hard to handle in the pan. I will be reformatting this recipe to make it easier for me to prepare, but changed or not it has awesome flavor. (I made the sauce suggested by elliebelle and it really completed the recipe perfectly)!

Jackie, these are Killer! This was my 1st attempt making rellenos. The batter was perfect! Much better than using eggs alone. My neighbor had given me some freshly roasted chiles from a farmers market in Flagstaff. They were absolutely divine! DH ate like 5 of them (and they were huge!). I left some of the rellenos plain after frying, and placed some of them in a baking dish with a little enchilada sauce and shredded cheese on top. They puffed up nicely after a few minutes in the oven. Thank you for sharing such a delicious, easy recipe! --Marla

Absolutely delicious! I made with fresh, home grown chilis and served with La Victoria Enchilada Sauce (mild red sauce).
