This is one of the first recipes I ever learned how to make. I loved Chilies Rellenos, but being a new cook, the whole process of making the "real deal" was intimidating to me. I can't remember now who gave me this recipe, but I have used it from day one and continue to use it today. It's super easy and you get the flavor of the Chilies Rellenos without all the "work". It's also one of my most shared recipes! I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine!
