In Spanish, relleno [rəˈyānō] means stuffed or filled. Chile rellenos are stuffed chile peppers. In New Mexico, the stuffing pepper of choice, of course, is a fresh, Hatch green chile. Grown in the New Mexico’s Hatch valley, these peppers have a balance of flavor and heat that is known around the country.
Papa Felipe’s chile rellenos are traditionally prepared, starting with a large, full green chile pod stuffed with cheese. The chile pepper is then coated with egg batter, and fried. The cooked peppers are covered with your choice of red or green chile, and garnish, and come served with two sides.
In 2014, Papa Felipe’s won a Top Five Best of the City award as one of the city’s Top Five Hidden Gems. To see more of Papa Felipe’s accolades and honors be sure to see our Reviews page.
