Whole30 Chile Relleno

I’m so full right now that I can hardly type, but I wanted to share what just under 400 calories can look like.

Let’s look at the profile, tho…

this is for the whole meal, not just the pepper.

30% of daily recommended protein w/o the flesh? LOL Nearly 50% rda fiber? And the other nutrients aren’t shabby either, look:

This is the best.

sweet potato “tortilla’

One of the things I like most about the Whole30 is how creative one can get on it. I mean, I don’t think I would ever have even thought of using a thinly-sliced sweet potato as a sort of tortilla, but it actually is very, very good.

Now this is nowhere near the kind of Chile Relleno one would get at a restaurant: first, there’s no cheese, no rice; hell, we’re lucky to have beans! But it’s also maybe 20% of the calorie load, and way, way more nutrition. It’s almost unfair to call it a Chile Relleno, but since the name simply means “stuffed pepper,” well, I think it’s okay.
