This is an old standby that we've always loved. But whoa! Lots of cheese!
A French friend thinks of it as a quiche. She misplaced the recipe I gave her, so she phoned and asked me for the "quiche recipe". After puzzling over that a minute or so, I knew what she wanted. And so the name was born: Chilis Relenos Quiche. This one's for you Claudine.
A tip: I've even made these, chilled them, cut them into smaller bite-sized pieces and served them as finger foods.
