Bonus Recipe! Clean Chile Relleno!

One of my pre-clean eating favorite dinners was Chili Relleno's. Oh my, could I put those away! These days, if I dare to order them I am turned off by all the batter, the greasy and congealing masses of cheese... the flavor of the chile gets lost in all the yuckiness... why bother? Nowadays I make them myself, clean, and they are so good! Plus - it's super easy, and they fit in my competition diet! If you like, you can serve these with some salsa, avocado, black beans, or black refried beans, or cilantro brown rice... you get the idea! Yum!
