It’s here! Our new Fresh Chile Relleno is officially on the Milagros Mexican restaurant menu.
Chile Relleno, literally means “stuffed chile.” A mild chili pepper is used called a Poblano pepper. It is a mild pepper with more flavor than a mild Anaheim. It is roasted and stuffed with meat or cheese and coated with an egg batter.
I have had several request to put a Relleno on the menu. However, my experience with Rellenos has been generally been disappointing. So many recipes use canned chiles that are coated with an egg/flour batter that has a mushy texture and not much flavor.
Some times Rellenos are cooked ahead and often re-heated… even in the microwave.
Over several months our kitchen went to work… testing and testing Rellenos to find the perfect blend of chili, cheese and batter.
