Game Day Grub – Chili Rellenos Recipe


Game Day Grub - Chili Rellenos Recipe

Our Game Day Grub-fixing Guru, John Haman, shares his Chili Rellenos recipe served with Mango-Basil Margaritas. Get your game-day eating face on. Buen provecho, Amigos!

I’d like to say the Razorback blessing before delving into this scrumptious meal. For Alex Collins, Jonathan Williams, Bret Bielema, Kiero Small and some sundry tight ends, we are thankful. For a fourth quarter of domination after worries that we’d be crushed by a Division 2 team, glory be. Now, considering the last 14 games played by Southern Miss, and all we have been through here, let’s just go whip some ass this week, okay? And let’s do it in Razorgumbo style.

What you are about to experience here will make for a perfect Razorback watch party at the house, but this one is not going to work at an outdoor tailgate.  So this one is for all the people who can’t make the trip to Fayetteville this week — or at some future time.

Also, I’m gleefully divulging that this entire article is an homage to the American master of Mexican cuisine, Rick Bayless. The recipe for rellenos was pulled from his masterful book “Authentic Mexican: Regional Cooking From the Heart of Mexico,” which is the book to read if you want to master the fundamentals of authentic Mexican cooking. The incredible master-class margarita is from his book “Frontera: Margaritas, Guacamoles and Snacks.” I will probably come back to these books before the season is done. Please buy his books.

Finally, check out the Razorback dishes we now proudly own at Razorgumbo! Pigs on the plates make the food taste better.

First, the Chili Rellenos recipe:

Seed the chilies for a mild sauce, since this is going over another pepper and we want to be cautious on your heat exposure. Chop the chilies into small bits and add to a food processor or blender, along with the onion, garlic and drained tomatoes. Puree, but retain a little texture.

Mango-Basil Margaritas:

Admittedly, this recipe is involved. You have to make special salt, a special syrup and a mango puree. However, if you really want to impress guests, it is totally worth it! And heck, you can skip the special salt if need be to get this sucker done.
