A LATIN LOVE STORY
Did you know, that chiles rellenos from Guatemala are different than the Mexican chiles rellenos?
Guatemalan chiles rellenos are basically, stuffed chilies, normally bell peppers and jalapeños or others, depending on what season holds. We used poblano, the Mexican chili of choice, for a little Latin collaboration.
Guatemalan rellenos are stuffed with a mixture of minced meat( We used local grass fed ground sirloin), carrots, haricots verts (green beans) and other spices,covered in an egg batter, and fried.
Fresh home-made red chili sauce, some steamed rice, a folk and my appetite, is all you need.
Me and my adopted Guatemalan Momma, Just after she threw down on some of her countries traditional specialties.
