Yesterday my co-worker asked me to come over to his desk and said "Hey Jay, check out this Chile Relleno that I got from the Taco Truck!" It was only 5 bucks and I ended up taking a picture because it looked sooo good. (You can see the pic on my instagram:

So I brought in cash today to get  in this goodness and "Yeah!" I happen to have my Nikon with me :) Hope you enjoy the pics and they make you hungry :D

Chile relleno

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The chile relleno (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈtʃile reˈʎeno], literally "stuffed chile"),[1] is a dish of Mexican cuisine that originated in the city of Puebla. It consists of a stuffed, roasted, fresh poblano pepper (a mild chili pepper named after the city of Puebla), sometimes substituted with non-traditional Hatch chileAnaheimpasillaor even jalapeño chili pepper. In its earliest incarnations, it was described as a "green chile pepper stuffed with minced meat and coated with eggs".[1] In current cuisine, it is typically stuffed with melted cheese, such as queso Chihuahua orqueso Oaxaca or picadillo meat made of diced pork, raisins and nuts, seasoned with canella; covered in an egg batter or simply corn masa flour and fried.[2]Although it is often served in a tomato sauce, the sauces can vary.
There are versions in Mexico using rehydrated dry chiles such as anchos or pasillas.
In the U.S. chiles rellenos are usually filled with asadero, asiago, or Monterey Jackcheese, but can also be found with cheddar or other cheeses. The chile is then dipped in an egg batter and either pan fried or deep fried. Variations include pecan encrusted and crab filled. Chiles rellenos are a popular cuisine in the state of New Mexico where the Hatch Chile is revered for its slender (rather than round) shape and medium to hot flavor. In the U.S., rellenos are typically served with red or green chile sauce or mole.
