MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 12, 2014

This was a great meal. I added ground turkey that I seasoned with garlic, chopped onions, red pepper, chili powder, and cumin. Also, I used fresh Anaheim peppers. I served with layered Mexican salad. The family loved it.

This was very comparable to the chiles rellenos that I always get when we go out to eat Mexican food, which is one of my favorite things to order. Also very easy to make. Made the recipe as is and I wouldn't change a thing.

Just made this and DEVOURED it. SOooo yummy. It really doesn't need any tweaks to be yummy, it stands on it's own. You could ass some chicken or beef or shrimp if you like and it would be good too.

MY REVIEW

I made this for my husband; his favorite dish to get when we eat at our local Mexican food joint. He likes them the way the restaurants make them so of course I tweeked this recipe. I couldn't find canned peppers in my area; so I used 6 fresh ones. I removed the seeds and did not split them in half. I also filled them with seasoned ground beef and a cube of the Monterey Jack Cheese. Baked the dish for about 10 more minutes than the original called for; until the peppers became tender, easy to put a knife through. I served it with a tomato salsa and the husband went back for 2nds!
