Recipe

Chile rellenos are one of my all time favorite Mexican dishes, but it's a dish I save for special occasions since they can pack quite a lot of calories and fat from all the cheese. Recently when I was thinking about how to make a healthier version of this dish, it dawned on me that I could create the same flavor profile in a frittata and immediately got to work. Using the same traditional ingredients as a chile relleno - eggs, poblano peppers, cheese, and tomato sauce - this frittata is seriously satisfying. I threw in some zucchini for extra veggies but you could leave these out if you want a more traditional take.
