I'm spoiled I guess... I've lived in Southern California all my life, and love Mexican food of all types. For me, Anaheim peppers are too mild, and I'll go for the Poblano any day (and who said Poblanos were "screaming hot"? They're pretty mild...) So, I used Poblanos, of course.
These were not too difficult to make (time intensive, yes. Difficult? No) but the result was not worth the effort for me when I can easily go buy really good rellenos.
I'm used to a softer batter - not the crispy, fried-fish like texture of these. Done with good cheese though, they are a reasonable substitute if you just can't get to decent Mexican food.
While I enjoyed these, they were not what I was expecting from a Relleno. They got three stars because they were still quite tasty, and had I not been expecting a specific result, I would have loved them.
Definitely worth doing for fun and a taste of Mexico if you're just dying for it.
