Chili Relleno simply means ‘stuffed chilies’ that form a part of the Mexican cuisine. This dish traces its origins to the city of Puebla and consists of roasted poblano pepper, a mild pepper variety named after the city it comes from. Sometimes instead of poblano pepper, hatch green chile, Anaheim, pasilla or even jalapeño chili peppers are used. Commonly, queso Chihuahua or queso Oaxaca cheese is used for the stuffing. Generally, masa flour or egg whites with a pinch of salt is used as the batter for the chili relleno dish.
Usually, the chillies are stuffed with diced pork, melted cheese, some nuts and raisins, and seasoned or coated with egg batter or only cornflour before frying. Frying is the preferred method of cooking this Mexican dish. Chili relleno is commonly garnished with white cheese and it is then served with chili relleno sauce, which is most often a tomato sauce but in the US, rellenos are normally served with red or green chilli sauce, and specifically in California a brown sauce is used for this purpose. Similarly, in the US, chilli rellenos may be stuffed with a variety of different cheeses such as Monterey, cheddar or others.
