El Cardenal in Mexico City, uses chipotle chilis instead of poblano peppers to create an absolutely remarkable chile relleno dish.  The sweet and smoky taste of chipotle offers a very creative take on a traditional plate. The peppers are stuffed with a blend of two cheeses.
This restaurant makes its own bread, tortillas, cheese and chocolate; its a wonderful place for breakfast and  has many locations throughout Mexico City. This photo was taken at the Polanco location.
Reservations are suggested, but not required.
Not in Mexico City? No worries! Make your own chiles rellenos
