Our chiles rellenos recipe is easy to follow, but do keep in mind that there is a great deal of preparation involved. In order to get started, you’ll need to assemble two packages of corn muffin mix, six slices of white bread, 12 ounces of turkey (or if you prefer, you can go with pork bulk sausage), some chopped onion, frozen corn, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, three cans of whole green chiles, black beans, Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar, Cabot Salted Butter, King Arthur unbleached all-purpose flour, two-percent milk, salt, black pepper, and cilantro. Also, we happen to be pretty big fans of really spicy chiles rellenos, so if the chiles aren’t spicy enough for you, go ahead and add in a dash of hot sauce or some chili powder to crank up that spicy factor.
