This video builds on a couple of techniques we’ve used before — including creating super melty cheese. This is a recipe where watching the video is going to be super helpful in understanding the directions.


  • 3 queso sticks (see video or this technique)

  • 2 roasted poblano peppers

  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

  • 6 TBS Birch Benders Keto pancake mix

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 large pinch sea salt

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 TBS heavy whipping cream


  • Add mozzarella, pancake mix, baking powder, baking soda and salt to a food processor and pulse until the mixture looks like bread crumbs. Add the eggs and heavy whipping cream and process until you have a smooth batter.
  • Transfer the batter to a piping bag or sandwich bag (makeshift piping bag). See the video for instructions.
  • Cut three melty queso sticks in half and wrap each with enough roasted poblano to cover at least half of it.
  • Use your piping bag to fill each corn dog maker cavity half way to 2/3rds full, then press each poblano wrapped cheese stick into the batter so that it is nicely nestled in.
  • Pipe a bead of batter on top of each piece of cheese. Close the corn dog maker and cook for 4 minutes.
  • Remove the chile rellenos to a wire rack and allow to cool for at least 3 minutes before serving.

  • Each relleno is consider a single serving for the purpose of the macros.

Products used in this recipe:


  1. I noticed in this recipe you used the Birch Blenders Keto, where in the Pigs in a Blanket you used Birch Blenders Paleo. Any particular reason for one choice over the other?

    • Steve @ SeriousKeto

      I use BB Keto in recipes where I want a more corn bread texture and I use BB Paleo when I want something lighter (like a pancake or waffle texture). BB Keto is not a good pancake or waffle mix, in my opinion, but I do like the texture for certain batters.

      • Thank you for your response. I hate buying products that end up sitting on the shelf until I throw them out. That will give me something to think about.

    Steve could you develop a NUT FREE batter for use in the corn dog maker recipes?

    Unfortunately BB products contain ingredients my husband can’t eat.

    • Steve @ SeriousKeto

      Possibly. It’s just so hard for me to accommodate every dietary need. I go through a lot of ingredients trying to find the right balance of taste and carbs. In the new year, I’ll be experimenting with lupin flour. If I have success with that, I’ll let everyone know.
