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!
