Pueblo chile is the most famous chile of our region, attracting chile aficionados’ attention from around the world. Its pungency ranges between 5,000 and 20,000 Scoville Heat Units, the measurement method used to rank chile heat. Pueblo chilies are comparable to moderate jalapeno peppers, and are usually a little warmer than cayenne peppers. The growing conditions in Southeastern Colorado render some of the best chile available. Hot, dry, sunny summer days, combined with our rich soils and pure Colorado water yield some of the hottest and most flavorful chilies. Watch out for the little ones – they’ve been tortured the most and are the hottest.
The trick to baking this is to measure all ingredients BY WEIGHT. You can purchase a digital scale at any restaurant supply store.
This recipe calls for the Chile Rellenos to be baked. If you prefer them fried, you can either wrap in egg roll wrappers, or bread with flour, egg, and breadcrumbs and deep fry. These are good on their own, but in Pueblo, we smother these in Pueblo green Chile sauce and more cheese.
