One of my favorite things to order at one of the local Mexican restaurants is Chili Rellenos. I’ve found that not all Chili Rellenos are made equally though. Their tastes can vary greatly between restaurants. Some put meat in and some don’t. Some do different types of cheeses. Typically I don’t try them just anywhere, but when I saw that I could try a version of Chili Rellenos in my slow cooker…I figured it was worth a shot! Now, this recipe isn’t exactly like my favorite Mexican restaurant’s taste, but it’s close…and close enough to make me happy. Here’s the recipe. Go to the end and there’s a video that shows exactly how I assembled it.
