Jalapeños Rellenos (Stuffed Jalapenos)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

Soledad Díaz of Oaxaca’s El Topil restaurant serves these with mezcal. For those that LOVE hot peppers!! The heat is wonderful in this dish and the stuffing aids in cooling it down. Oh Yum! Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2005.

I had two anaheim chilies that needed to be used so used them instead of the jalapenos. Mine needed more time but were great. Served with Recipe #204703 and Recipe #310692.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim and discard stem ends of 8 jalapeño chiles (always wear rubber gloves when handling hot chiles). Scrape seeds and veins out of each chile with a thin-bladed knife.
  2. Mash together queso fresco (fresh Mexican cheese), cilantro and mint leaves, and yellow onion. Stuff chiles with mixture, dividing it equally between them.
  3. Sauté chiles in a lightly oiled nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, turning occasionally, until soft and all sides are browned, about 15 minutes.
