    Heck yeah the best Mexican food is found in California! I miss it so much. I think the last time I had chilie relleno was 3 years ago when I last visited home. Now I am not only hungry for more Mexican food and am feeling slightly homesick.

    Oh my gosh, these look absolutely mouthwatering. I love chiles rellenos, but haven’t had them in far too long. Wish I could just reach in and grab one. Thanks so much for this amazing Fiesta addition!

    What does Joe do at the restaurant? Is he a chef or a sommelier? I love the photo of you on the horse! how fun. We’ll be in Cancun for our wedding next fall. This will be my second time in Cancun. I loved visiting Chichen Itza too! We were there during the solstice and we got see the shadow moving like a snake. Love your dish!

    You are so right about CA Mexican food! When we moved East from CA for a few years, it just wasn’t the same. I love chile rellenos…I admire anyone who makes them at home!

    I completely agree that So. California has the best Mexican food. We now live in Texas and if we want good Mexican food, we have to make it at home. We never had to before but Tex Mex is completely different and we don’t consider it authentic traditional Mexican food like Hubby’s mom made. As I write, hubby is preparing the rellenos. We use Monterey Jack and fill from the stem end (seeds and stem removed) With each Mexican family there are slight variations. We don’t shred our cheesse. Instead we cut thick sticks to stuff inside the pepper. We make tamales and carnitas, refried beans and many other delicious Mexican dishes. I make our own red enchilada sauce at home from scratch and hubby does not like any other. Spoiled? YES !! We live in a small town and there is only one Mexican restaurant that is marginally acceptable for us. If you live in Southern California, consider yourself blessed. I visited this site because I wanted to see how you made your red sauce. Thanks for posting real Mexican food!

      You comment made my day! I LOVE that you make your own enchilada sauce..I still have yet to do that!I will try your suggestion with monterey jack next time I make it, which should be soon since I haven’t in quite a long time and I know my husband would like this for his birthday soon! Thank you so much for commenting and following my blog!

    I too have had egg batter issues with it not sticking. To make the batter stick to the chile…first moisten the chile then dust with flour before coating in the egg batter. This has alway worked for me.
