How to Make Baked Chiles Rellenos
Tips and Tricks
Making this recipe is Eazy Peazy but here are some helpful tips and tricks so It turns out great every time.
- Different Ingredients: You can use fresh poblanos instead, but it is more work. If you do so, then roast or boil the poblanos first.
- Cheese: The cheese strip should fit easily into the chile. If this isn’t the case, cut it into a smaller slice, rather than shoving the cheese into the chile and trying to make it fit.
- Add Extra: Add a little something extra and add warm enchilada sauce as a decadent topper to the dish.
- Make it Cheesy: Add additional cheese like mozzarella, if your heart so desires.
- Use Any Cheese That Melts Well: You can sub out the cheese for another one you prefer, just make sure it is a cheese that melts well.
Make Ahead and Storage
Fresh is best and since Baked Chile Rellenos are so easy to make, you really don’t need to make them ahead of time.
Any leftovers could be stored in an airtight container in the fridge and then heated up in the microwave, but the quality and integrity of the dish may be compromised,
There is really no freezer option that makes sense time wise.
You could cook and freeze them without the topping, but then you would need to get creative as how to incorporate the topping later.
