Chile Relleno

May 5, 2011

Cinco de Mayo is here! And Mexican food is on everyone's mind.

lime and chiles

Instead of eating tacos or burritos (even though incredibly delicious) why not try and make some chile rellenos, chiles stuffed with cheese and then battered and fried. My dad loves this dish and prefers it with a nice helping of rice, beans, and chips.
