Stuffed poblano peppers is one of my favorite Mexican dishes! I love to eat and also make them at home. It’s definitely a laborious dish to cook. I take a lot of pride while I make them because it’s such a traditional recipe. An older family friend taught me how to make them when I was 18 years old. I’ve since put my own twist on it while still respecting the long-established, classical technique. To this day, I still try to impress my grandpa every time I make them. The best part is that there are a few ways to eat stuffed poblano peppers: some like them dry and some with sauce. Most like them on a plate with a few sides. My personal, cherished way is to put the chiles rellenos on a bean-and-cheese burrito. Give this recipe a try; you will thank me for life!
