Summertime Chile Cheese Fritters
These delicious grain-free cheese fritters are made with the same batter as our Chiles Rellenos and are great for meals that need to get made quickly!
We have been using The Hatch Chile Store’s Roasting and Peeling instructions in our recent posts. As an incredible show of appreciation, they sent us these absolutely beautiful roasted chiles in the mail! You can order your own as well!
They came pre-roasted, chopped, and ready for use!
