How to Make Chile Relleno Breakfast Bowls


  • 1Preheat oven to 325 degrees
    Lightly grease 4 10 oz. custard cups
    In small bowl combine the cheese, flour, salt and pepper. In another small bowl combine beaten eggs, chiles, garlic and onion. Add 1/2 of cheese mixture to egg mixture.
  • 2Brush both sides of tortilla with melted butter. Nestle each tortilla into one of the custard cups forming "bowls". Distribute egg mixture evenly into the tortilla bowls. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 of cheese mixture over egg mixture.
  • 3Bake uncovered 25-30 minutes, or until eggs are set. Let stand 5 minutes.
  • 4Top with salsa, sour cream and any desired toppings. Serve with seasonal fresh fruit or sliced avocado.
    (hint: heating tortillas in microwave for 5-10 seconds on high before brushing with butter makes them more pliable). My family absolutely loves this and the presentation is impressive!
