In Gus’ Kitchen
Carefully layering the ingredients inside of the peppers is the most vital step. Our chefs prepare chile rellenos by carefully mixing all the ingredients together in a proportionate manner and artistically layering the ingredients into the pepper. Once the chilies are stuffed, they are dipped in a light egg batter. The dipped chilies are then grilled. While grilling the chilies, they are turned once or twice in between to make them golden brown from all the sides evenly.
