Smoked Chicken Chile Rellanos

These are one of my favorites. They take time to make, so I make extras and freeze them for an easy meal. :)

I start by smoking a chicken, then letting it cool....




I remove the chicken meat from the bone........ mince about 1/2 cup of onion, one jalapeno and shred some queso campesino cheese.


I combine the chicken, cheese, onion and jalapeno....

For milder rellanos, do not use the chopped jalapeno.


I like anaheim peppers...they are my favorite.
I blister the peppers over fire. A grill works great for this....I used a burner on my stove...


After blistering the peppers, I let them steam in a baggie. This makes them easier to peel.


I wash the peel off the peppers, slit them down the side and remove all seeds.
Then stuff with the smoked chicken/cheese mixture....


I give the peppers a light dusting of flour....


For my batter.... I whip 4 egg whites....


Beat my yolks in a separate bowl....


Combine the egg white and yolk with 4 TBS of flour....

I dip the stuffed peppers in the batter and fry in oil til golden.......



Let them drain on a paper towel....




The smoked chicken and melted cheese are tasty......

We hadn't really had any snow since the big storm over Christmas. Though yesterday morning it did snow a little bit. Maybe a half inch, and it was all melted by noon. I hope we get some more... I love snow.

cowgirl said...

I hope you get more snow Mike. If you do...I want to see some snow angel pictures. lol :)

No snow here - just some icy roads.

Those are fine rellenos, Jeanie! I always used Poblanos, but I may give this a try.

Checkin' in to see how the Cowgirl is doin' in the snow up there.

I think I like the snow much better than ice. :)
The windmill has been giving me a bit of trouble this week so I'm breaking ice on the pond for the animals.

I like poblanos too!! Very tasty. :)

Hope you are keeping warm!

REmember, breaking ice is cheaper than tank heaters...
