  1. I had the chile rellenos at Los Nopales last night. Thought they were outstanding. The place is a bit hard to find.

    Los Nopales
    3051 S Kinney Rd, Tucson, AZ 85713

    1. Two of my favorites are Rosa's (Campbell/ Ft Lowell) and Poco and Mom's(Kolb)

      1. I got a chli relleno at Poco & Mom's he first time I went there, asked for the sauce on the side and she said "no problem!" The relleno was very good- thin crispy coating, real green chile, and it wasn't all globbed down and mushy from having arrived with sauce all over it weighing it down. I'm going to get it there from now on. plus the servers are a tad in-your-face but extremely friendly and accommodating.

          If you want to read over 100 chile rellenos reviews, may I suggest Simon E on Yelp. The guy uses "3 word descriptors", not sure what that means. But I think he has tried every single chile relleno in Tucson.

            I thought I was a CR freak, Simon E is unbeleivable !
