My father is a big foodie and he loves to cook as well. It was only last year that he surprised us with chiles Rellenos at lunch. It looked amazing and I loved it. Since I liked it too much, I asked my father to share the recipe for Chiles Rellenos with me. I have been cooking it ever since.

To make Chile Rellenos, bake the peppers and steam in a wrapped bowl. Then, remove their skin and seeds and stuff the peppers with cheese. In a bowl, mix egg yolks and baking powder and beat egg whites in another. Mix the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Take some flour in a shallow dish. Then, dip the peppers in the flour and egg mixture. Fry them until golden brown.

  • 6 Anaheim Chile Peppers
  • 8 ounces White Mexican Cheese

  • 1 cup Vegetable Shortening (for frying)


  • Take a baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil.

  • Take a bowl and put the blackened peppers into it.
  • Seal the bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Meanwhile, as the peppers begin to cool, let them steam for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Use cold water for peeling off the skins of cooled peppers.
  • Pertinently, take off the seeds and core from each of the pepper.
  • Wash the peppers inside out and let them dry.
  • Add cheese strips to the peppers.
  • Take a bowl. Mix baking powder with the egg yolks.
  • Take another bowl. Blend the egg whites in an electric mixer. Ensure that have formed stiff peaks.
  • Next, this beaten egg whites mixture has to be folded onto the prepared yolk mixture.
  • Now, take a shallow bowl for flour.
  • Take a skillet. Heat vegetable shortening over medium heat.
  • Each stuffed pepper has to be rolled in the flour with tapping off excess flour and dipped into the mixture of eggs. Ensure both the sides are properly coated.
  • Next, place them into the skillet.
  • Let the peppers fry so that they get golden brown and the cheese gets melted. It would take about 5 minutes to fry both sides of the coated peppers.
