ooh this post reminds me of something I have been serching for for years! I had a chili relleno at a small restaurant in Bakersfield once but it had a meat filling, I had found a simular recipe once with small bite size piece od steak but when I made it I mixed ground beef and the steak together...it came out perfect...but what my problem is I can not find the recipe anywhere! I either lost in a move or I let a friend borrow it (the original copy...duh) please help anyone! I think the filling was called a picadillo?? But everything I have search for does not sound right....from what I remember of ingredients was, beef, cumin, tomato,.....
