Chiles Rellenos Recipe-Cinco De Mayo Recipe!

I must admit that this recipe is a bit time consuming, and so worth the effect making it. I would suggest making the sauce a day prior to making the peppers. I will be making this again on Sunday for Cinco de mayo. This recipe is also Induction friendly!

Chili Relleno sauce
6 Roma tomatoes
1 cup of water
1/2 medium white onion
2-3 cloves of garlic, (crushed
1 medium Serrano chile
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/8 tsp of black pepper

4 Poblano peppers
8 0z monterey jack cheese- (2 oz for each pepper)
4 large eggs, separated
pinch of salt
Oil for frying

    These were delicious but so much work! Yikes. I put them into a recipe calculator and got 8.8 carbs with 1.7 grams fiber for a net carb of 7.1. Also, the calories was 438 calories per serving.

    This is sooooooo yummy! Thanks so much for posting this and going to the trouble of making it! I love Chile Rellenos but hate the low carb casserole ones and all the other ones I have ever tried have never been this good. These taste like restaurant quality. Thanks Jay!!

    OMG! These look so great! Mexican food is my very favorite. I never thought I could eat these on the Adkins diet. Can you tell me how many carbs per serving? Thank you so much for all your wonderful recipe’s. I’m so glad I found you. 🙂

    Welcome!! I wish you had emailed me when you were in Trini I would have given you many tips on how to do Atkins in Trini. For me it was easier doing it in Trini. I especially loved bhaji and cauliflower rice.

    So happy that I found your site. Doing Atkins in Trinidad was rough, so I pretty much gave up and waited til I got back to the US. Really liking your recipes and can’t wait to try them all out.
