This super easy to make Chile Relleno Casserole is loaded with green chiles, Monterey Jack cheese and cheddar cheese in a puffy egg base. For even more flavor top with pico de gallo, sour cream, cilantro or avocado. For a complete meal like Sunday Brunch I love to serve this dish with cornbread and Fruit Salad.
