    Miss Annie's Note:

    From the Senior Pico restaurant in Los Angeles. These rellenos BAKE instead of fry, and are super! The fresh peppers are worth the extra effort, but canned are acceptable. See the database for Senor's Pico's Picante Sauce. The prep time is figured for canned chiles.

      This is really good. I love chili rellenos. I would suggest modifing the ingredient list so that it is clearer there that you need both the monterey jack and the cheddar as I read it to be one or the other until I read through the directions.

      This tasted really good!! I opened the chilis flat, did a layer of the egg, then flat chilies, some cooked shredded chicken (seasoned with southwest seasoning), lots of cheese, another layer of the flat chilies then the top layer of egg. I cooked it some in the oven to set the egg before I put the cheese on. It was so good that way!! Not authentic, but the flavors came across.

      Mizz Annie, you've done it again!! You know I made your DP picante sauce recently...Now, your SP rellenos...Together...Divine!! Really a scrumptious dish! Whipping the egg whites makes all the difference...Did use canned chilies...worked great. Thanks for sharing...We'll be doing this one again, for sure! Laudee
