Crescent Chile Rellenos

The Captain and I love snacky stuff and this recipe looks perfect for the type of snacks we like!  Great for those times we are craving mexican type foods.

I'm always looking for ways to make a new recipe with variations and this one is no different . . . I'm thinking simple ham and cheese finger food!  Great lunch idea with a salad!

Another great recipe from!

  • prep time 25 min
    total time 40 min
    ingredients 7
    servings 3

    • 2 cans (4 oz each) whole green chiles, drained
    • 2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
    • 4 oz hot pepper-Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 6 strips
    • 4 oz Cheddar cheese, cut into 6 strips
    • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
    • 1 egg, beaten 
    • 3/4 cup taco sauce, if desired


Heat oven to 375°F. Cut each green chile lengthwise along one side; open chiles and pat inside and outside dry with paper towel. Coat all sides of each chile with cornmeal. Place 1 strip of each cheese in each chile; close chile (edges of chiles may not meet over cheese). Set aside.

Unroll dough and separate into 2 long rectangles; press each into 15x5-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle into 3 squares.

Place 1 cheese-filled chile diagonally on each square. Bring sides of dough up over chile; pinch firmly to seal.

Fold down top; pinch to seal. Firmly pinch bottom point together to seal; place seam side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops with egg.

Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, heat taco sauce. 

Immediately remove rellenos from cookie sheet. Serve warm with warm taco sauce for dipping.
