The chile relleno, literally "stuffed pepper", is a dish of Mexican cuisine that originated in the city of Puebla, consisting of a roasted fresh poblano pepper (the poblano pepper is named after the city of Puebla), and many times substituted with non-traditional Anaheim, or pasilla chili pepper stuffed with a melting cheese, such as queso Chihuahua or queso Oaxaca (traditionally), and/or picadillo meat made up of diced pork, raisins, and nuts, seasoned with canella meat, covered in an egg batter, and fried. It is often served in a tomato sauce. The type of sauce varies widely. There are also many versions in Mexico that use rehydrated dry chiles such as Anchos or Pasillas.
