Cover the bottom of a frying pan with vegetable oil. Heat the oil until it's hot then carefully place the individual rellenos in the hot oil. Flip once and cook until golden brown. Now carefully take them out of the oil and place them on a paper towel to cool.

Only cook the ones you plan on eating right away. Save the rest for breakfast .

mmmm i love mexican food

Not even close...Why You people allways think in Mexican food as big taco? (And this recipe is not even close to look like a taco)

This is not a Chile Relleno! This is a burrito filled with a pepper and cheese. An authentic Chile Relleno is a roasted poblano chili this is stuffed cheese or refried beans, meat, shrimp....what have you, then battered in frothy egg whites and then deeo fried. You could have at researched some recipes online.

To roast a chile, buy a basic long green fresh"anaheim chile." They are mild in flavor, turn on the broiler in your oven or toaster oven, place the chile within 4-6 inches of the burners. When they start to blister and turn black, take them out ouf the oven and place them in a plastic baggy or ziplock bag. Leave them in there for 10 - 15 minutes or so which allows them to steam a bit and when you take them out, the burnt skins will peel off easily.

These look very good. Do you have to roast and skin the peppers yourself or can you buy them ready to go? I'm not the best cook, go for easy and fast, and have never really used peppers very often. Would like to try this though, looks so good!

I bought a bag of fire roasted Hatch, New Mexico chilies from some farmers on the side of the road. They are already roasted you just have to pull the skins off and remove the seeds from the center. At some super markets you can also buy cans of whole green chiles, for theses you just have to open the can then remove the seeds. You can also fire roast your oun fresh chiles by placing the chile over the fire on a gas stove, turning it until it’s blistered on both sides, then place the chile in a large bowl with a little bit of cold water to cool, then pull off the skin and remove the seeds.
Oh thanks for the info. I'll try the canned first. Maybe the peppers over the stove.... hopefully without burning the house down. I'll impress my son if I'm able to pull this off and actually make these. LOL
wonton wrappers, VERY clever!

Looks good! I made those in prison once, but I had to use bird eggs from the yard. That Bird Man from Alcatraz guy was not very chuffed. This looks like the way forward.
