Chile Rellenos: Pasilla Peppers Stuffed with Supremo’s Queso Chihuahua

by Art Rodriguez April 11, 2012

Recently, the kind folks over at Supremo sent us some fabulous cheeses, chorizo, and cremas.  We ate most of the cheeses in sandwiches, with eggs and chorizo, in beans, in quesadillas, on sopes, with fruit, etc.  We made some devilishly delicious Red Chilaquiles using some Queso Asadero, a LatinoFoodie spin on Strawberries and Cream using Mexican Ricotta, and these Chile Rellenos with two kinds of cheese.  We chose Queso Chihuahua  because it is a semi-soft, mild melting cheese with a buttery flavor, and we used the Queso Chihuahua con Chipotle to add a little smoky heat.  We used shredded cheese because that is what was available to us.  If you have it, cutting long spears of cheese works well here.  The whipped egg whites offer a nice thick and spongy casing for you to bite into.  Enjoy these chile rellenos with a cold beer for dinner or a cup of coffee for breakfast.


Chile Rellenos
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp dried chipotle powder
  • 6 pasilla peppers
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Queso Chihuahua
  • 1 cup Queso Chihuahua con Chipotle
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 3 cups vegetable oil (varies depending on the size of your pan)
  • Optional: Served with Spanish rice and red salsa
  1. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Next you’ll need to remove the skin of the pasilla peppers. Completely coat the peppers using the1 tbsp of oil. Over a burner, char the peppers on all sides. Place in a Ziploc bag for 15-20 minutes. Under running water, remove the charred skin of the peppers, taking care not to tear the skin of the pasilla peppers.
  3. Cut a small slit into the peppers and fill with cheese.
  4. Carefully dredge the peppers in the flour mixture. Set aside while you heat your vegetable oil over medium high heat in a large deep pan
  5. While your oil is getting hot, in a large mixing bowl beat your egg whites until you get firm peaks, then quickly beat in the egg yolks.
  6. When your oil is hot, carefully dip a pepper into the egg mixture, covering completely, and gently place in your oil. Fry for about 2-3 minutes each side. Do this in batches so as not to crowd the pan. Place on paper towels to drain.
  7. Spoon some red salsa over your chile relleno. Serve with Spanish rice, frijoles del olla or alongside a fried egg.

Maple Cream Easter Eggs

by Femme Fraîche March 20, 2016

Maple Cream Easter EggsEvery year when I was a kid, I could count on two things in my Easter basket – marshmallow eggs and maple cream eggs. Each served different purposes. The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
