Albuquerque’s Best Carne Adovada Rellenos

Cocina Azul’s carne adovada relleno plate may actually be too delicious to describe all at once here. We may have to ease into this.

We may have to start slowly.

Let’s start with the sides.

When you order the carne adovada relleno plate here at Albuquerque’s Cocina Azul, it comes with a side of whole beans, so hearty, so substantial. Classic, filling, delicious.

Or you can choose for it to come with our buttery white rice, so light and savory, like brightness you can eat.

You could also ask for fideos, Spanish noodles or for calabacitas—a visual, culinary medley of zucchini, squash, corn, onions and spices.

Any two of the above are yours with your meal.

There’s also as much red or green chile sauce as you can handle—our owner Frank Sr.’s special recipe.

And then there’s the main course itself: chile rellenos—two full-stem New Mexico green chiles—direct from Hatch, New Mexico to your plate—stuffed with Monterey jack and white cheddar cheeses.

And it that alone wasn’t enough, these chile rellenos come smothered in our carne adovada—pork cushion, lean, flavorful pork shoulder marinated in red chile sauce.

There is so much here, so much food, so much flavor—and yet, when it’s all over, you will find yourself mopping up your plate with a  sopapilla, still craving those final tastes of this unforgettable meal. Contact us today!
