Delicious Chile Rellenos Casserole

This is so good! You may want to double up! I like spicy, but you can tone down the spice and use plain monterey jack cheese. Use cheeses that you would like. I love the fresh peppers in this and the two kinds of cheeses. Served with picante sauce and sour cream - unbelievable!

How to Make Delicious Chile Rellenos Casserole


  • 1Quarter the peppers and remove seeds, stems, and veins. Immerse peppers into boiling water for 3 minutes; drain. Invert peppers on paper towels to drain well. Place the peppers in a well-greased 2-quart square or round baking dish. Top with 1 cup of the monterey jack cheese.
  • 2In a medium bowl combine eggs and milk. Add flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Beat until smooth with a rotary beater. Pour egg mixture over peppers and cheese.
  • 3Bake, uncovered, in a 450 degree F oven about 15 minutes or until a knife inserted into the egg mixture comes out clean. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Put back in oven for 5 mins. Take out of oven and let stand about 5 minutes. If desired, serve with picante sauce and sour cream.
