my take on chile relleno | kelly’s kitchen

  1. Sylvia Espinoza says:

    Hi, Kelly! Today’s post brought back memories of my mom making Chile Relleno for my dad. Seemed so labor intensive! As young as I was, thought mom sure must love dad to go through all that work. Her reward was watching him enjoy them and complimenting her effort. Sweet memory. May I say, it still sounds labor intensive, and oh so delicious! Should I give them a try, will let you know. Thanks for sharing your talent with us every Saturday morning. Happy Fall Weekend! Hugs~

    • Hi Sylvia, I am so happy this recipe brought back such sweet memories for you! Thank you for sharing with me. You know it does appear to be labor intensive but I actually broiled the chiles and made the tomato puree a day ahead, which made it all seem a little less intensive. You could even make the filling a day ahead too. I encourage you to give them a try! Let me know if you do, how it goes. Thanks for popping in this week, it’s always so nice to hear from you, Sylvia. Have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    I love the chili relleno’s! My mom and aunt used to get them from a nearby restaurant when I was a teen. Such memories! I am from Northern CA (now in Texas)! I MISS Trader Joes! I have not found one near me yet! Thank you for the recipe. Hope your Dad is doing well in California with all of the fires.

    • Hello Jenine, Thanks so much for writing in today. I wonder where you’re from in NorCal…? My Dad is up in Mt. Shasta, and is ok, the Zogg fire is pretty far from them. And yes, we are so thankful there is a TJ’s here in Athens! I am happy this recipe brought back fond memories for you, it’s one of my favorite things about cooking. Have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    Thank you Kelly for this amazing looking recipe. I live in Mexico near Guadalajara and I think this refreshing take on the chili relleno is one I will try!

    • Hi Ann, Thanks so much for writing in today! I really enjoyed the panko crust, it is a refreshing difference. I hope you give it a try and let me know how it goes for you. Enjoy your weekend! xo Kelly

    Hi Kelly,
    I just wanted to say that I fixed your chicken with olives and artichokes last night. It was delicious. Thank you for a new recipe that I”ll definitely make again.
    Olives and artichokes are always a favorite of mine.

    • Wonderful, Carolyn! I am so happy you enjoyed it and will make it again! Thank you so much for writing in to let me know. I love to hear that y’all are trying these recipes. I hope you have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    A lot of steps, thanks for the detailed instructions. These look and sound downright delicious. Will gather the ingredients, and give them a try next week. Thanks!

    • There are definitely more than a few steps, Deanna! Haha! But, might I suggest making the filling, salsa, and roasting the chiles a day ahead? I am excited to know what you think after you make them, be sure to let me know! Have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    Live in the Napa Valley and the smoke is less this morning which is good news plus the winds never
    blew. My mom stuffed Chile’s that were absolutely delicious. Yours look like less calories ;-). I wish there was an easy way to print your recipes xoxo Sue

    • Hi Sue. My thoughts are with everyone in the fire zones. My mom and Grandma live on Cobb Mountain just over Mt. St. Helena from you, I am always worried about them. I’ve been tracking the Glass fire everyday…I have spent a lot of time in Napa Valley and it’s just so hard to see the devastation. I am happy the weather is cooperating today. You should be able to print the recipe card I include at the end of the posts…give that a try, let me know if you still have trouble. Take care and be well, xo Kelly

    Thanks for the post, but prefer something healthier.

    • Thanks Barbara, everything in moderation. We maintain a healthy, balanced diet and sometimes we just like to indulge! Stay tuned, there will be plenty of non-fried recipes on Kelly’s Kitchen! Have a great weekend, xo Kelly

    These look fabulous!! I’m in NM and had these tonight for dinner (courtesy of my brother!!). His recipe is very similar, and very delicious!

    • Hi Steph, Thanks so much! I bet you get to enjoy tons of Hatch chiles living in NM. I am only sorry I didn’t buy more than one package! Have a great rest of your weekend! xo Kelly
