Number of Servings: 1


    Egg roll wrapper
    1 whole fire roasted green chile sliced lengthwise and seeds removed (I use Ortega canned chiles)
    1 oz. Cheese (I use monterrey jack, but really most cheeses would work)
    Oil for frying


Heat oil to 375 degrees. Make sure it's deep enough for the entire relleno. Remove seeds from chiles and place on top of an egg roll wrapper. Stuff pepper with cheese and wrap the egg roll wrapper around the chile and the cheese. Seal wrapper with a little water on your finger or a pastry brush.

Carefully place relleno in hot oil and fry until crispy and golden (about 6 to 8 minutes).

Great topped with green chili or salsa.

The nutritional info doesn't include the oil that is used to fry these, or any extra toppings. Make a big batch and freeze. Great for a quick meal later on.

Recipe is for 1 relleno
