What is a poblano chile relleno wrapped in puff pastry?

It is a roasted, peeled, and stuffed poblano pepper that is then wrapped in puff pastry. It goes into the oven, and the puff pastry gets crispy, golden, and delicious.

You can fill these chilies following my vegan recipe, or you can fill them with quinoa, vegan picadillo, or whatever you like the most.

  • Brown rice, white rice, or quinoa
  • Grated vegan cheese, use your favorite brand, but look for one that melts and has great flavor.
  • Pecans or walnuts
  • Puff pastry; look for one that is vegan. Believe it or not, most of the puff pastries sold in supermarkets are vegan; they are made with vegetable oil and not butter.

HOW TO MAKE baked chiles Rellenos IN Puff Pastry?

First, roast the chile poblano in the oven, on a comal (affiliate link), or in a skillet on the stove. When they are fully roasted on both sides, peel them, it is not necessary, though.

Open the chiles with a small knife on one side only, being very careful not to reach the other side. The idea is to make a bag of chili to fill later.

Mix the rice with the cheese and the chopped nuts. Add a pinch of salt and carefully stuff the chiles. Roll out the puff pastry and cut it into six pieces. Put one chili relleno on each piece and wrap it with the pastry; close tightly by pinching the puff pastry between your fingers.

Put on a baking sheet and bake until golden and delicious. If you want to brush the puff pastry before putting them in the oven, you can do it with coconut oil or soy milk.

  • 4 to 6 medium poblano peppers

  • 400 g puff pastry
  • all-purpose flour (affiliate link) the necessary

  • Roast the chiles in the oven or on the stove, peel and devein carefully making a thin slit in the middle.
  • Mix the rice, with the grated cheese and the chopped walnut. Season with a pinch of salt.
  • Stretch the puff pastry and cut depending on the number of chilis you have. You can cut into triangles or rectangles.
  • Put a chile relleno in the center of each piece and wrap the chile. With your fingers, join the dough so that they are completely sealed.
  • Brush with coconut oil or soy milk.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at a temperature of 350ºF (180ºC)


I use grated vegan cheese from the Violife brand, but with any other cheese it is perfect. When you peel and devein the chiles, be careful not to split them completely, they should be like a bag to fill later.
Look for a vegan puff pastry brand.
