    Cooks4_6's Note:

    We have an awesome authentic Mexican restaurant in our little Midwestern town. I fell in love with their Chilies Rellenos, and this is the closest I come to duplicating it. (It can also be made with red enchilada sauce for an entirely different flavor. Can sizes are approximate)I serve these with Shirleen McCorkle's Refried Bean recipe and they go wonderfully together!

      I followed the directions exactly (well almost, I forgot the rotel tomatoes) and did not peel the peppers. I think next time I will take mr gene's advice and roast and peel the peppers. I made this using El Charro Cafe Green Enchilada Sauce as my green enchilada sauce. Even with the skin this recipe was delicious!

      A quick and easy to put toghter. I roasted the chilies on the barbee,they were the easiest peppers that I have peeled ever. I think I will use this method from now on. The next time I make this I am going to put some diced onions in it.
