Non Traditional Chile Rellenos
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a heathlier version of a chile relleno. This is not a traditional relleno, but it is fast and easy to make in the microwave. Yes, microwave! I got this recipe from a lady that sells chile at the farmers market and I tried and really liked it for a quick chile relleno fix! Hope you like it too. You can use whatever cheese you want and use prepared bread crumbs if you want.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1/2-1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
1 tomato, cut in strips (I used roma)
4 green chilies (roasted and peeled)
Mix bread crumbs with salt and garlic powder.
Remove stems from chile and seed if you want. Cut open and lay chile flat.
Divide the 1/2 cup cheese between the 4 chiles and place 2 strips of tomatoe in each.
Close up chile and sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese on them.
Sprinkle bread crumbs on chiles. May not need the whole cup, maybe 3/4 cup.
Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top of bread crumbs.
Microwave for 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
