Wow! You know your recipe is one of the reasons I LOVE RECIPEZAAR! This was super easy, had a fabulous flavor-in fact it truely tasted like it came from a mexican restaurant. I did use canola oil to fry them in as well as an electric skillet so that I had a better way to control the heat. Anyway thanks so much for posting I will definately be making these alot!
Tastes authentic & so easy. In fact the batter is so no fuss, that it's my new go to for fried fish and zucchini. Thanks a million.
Great chili rellenos. I used freshly roasted anaheim chilies with Asadero cheese and they were great. Served with Hot Pepper Garlic Jelly, salsa and salsa verde all homemade.
