How to Make Meaty Chili Rellenos Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain the chilies, removing the seeds, and dry on paper towels. Brown ground beef and cook with taco mix as directed on package. Grate the cheeses and mix together. Reserve 3/4 cup of cheese in a small bowl. This will go on top of the casserole later, so you can place it in the refrigerator for now.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 pan (or 3 quart casserole dish) with non-stick spray.
  3. Layer 1/2 of the chilies, 1/2 of the ground beef, 1/2 of the cheese, the remaining chilies, then the rest of the beef and cheese. In med bowl add the eggs add the milk (or 1/2 & 1/2), nacho cheese soup, flour, salt and pepper, beating until well-mixed. Pour the egg mixture over the beef, chilies and cheese.
  4. Bake at 300 for 1 hour. Then spread the red enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the reserved cheese you placed in the refrigerator. Bake 1/2 hour longer. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
