Easy Chile Rellenos

The Man loves Chiles Rellenos, so being the good wife that I am, I searched my favorite blogs for a recipe to make them for him. As soon as I saw the name of this recipe by Pioneer Woman, I knew I'd have to try it. Wrapped in a warm tortilla, these make a yummy, spicy breakfast burrito. Although I am still looking for a 'real' Chiles Relleno recipe, this breakfast version was a big hit in the meantime!
