1 Pkg. fresh egg roll skins
1 # pork sausage( like Jimmy Dean Regular) or Hamburger or some of each( opt.)
1 &1/2# Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack Cheese
1 - 4 oz. can chopped green chilies or jalapenos
Small bowl of water for sealing relleno
Oil for frying

If using meat- fry and drain and set aside.
Cube Monterey Jack cheese
On cutting board, lay out a relleno skin and scoop a heaping Tablespoon of cheese to middle of skin.
Add meat and 1/2 - 1 tsp. chilies. Fold one corner of relleno skin over filling and tuck in. Then fold other sices /edges to make a square. Fry in hot oil on each side to a golden brown to melt cheese ( may fold like egg roll as well)

Serve hot with lettuce, tomato, sour creme and salsa.
Also good with avocado slices and mexican rice.. Pork Verde gravy poured over is also great!.

Recipe amounts can vary depending on how much cheese and or meat is used.
Cindy made rellenos with a whole fire roasted Chile, stuffed with cheese, rolled in egg roll skins and fried like an egg roll! So good!
