Green Chile Rellenos Casserole

Joy Hall


Saw a recipe for regular Chili Rellenos Casserole and got all twisty when I started making it. Didn't have beef thawed but I had chicken. Didn't have red enchilada sauce, but had salsa verdes. I used my Hatch chiles, but left the canned chiles in the recipe. It goes together super quick, and the family loved it.
