Chili Rellenos Casserole is another one of those recipes where most everyone seems to have their own favorite version. I like this one because it is quick to throw together, tasty, and filling!
I usually serve it with flour tortillas, pinto, refried, or ranch-style beans, sour cream and Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes and Chilis, or salsa.

  • 1 1/2 c
    monterey jack cheese, grated
  • 1 1/2 c
    cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 can(s)
    mild diced green chilis, or 1 mild and 1 jalapeno diced chilis
  • 1/2 to 1 lb
    ground beef, browned and drained (optional)
  • 4
    eggs, beaten
  • 1 can(s)
    evaporated milk (5 oz)
  • 2 Tbsp

How to Make Tasty & Easy Chili Rellenos Casserole


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease casserole dish.
  2. In pan, layer 1/2 of chilis, cheese and ground beef (if using) in the casserole. Repeat layers.
  3. Beat together well the eggs, canned milk, and flour. Pour over the cheese mixture. (If you feel additional liquid is desired, add a small amount of whole milk).
  4. Bake, uncovered, for about 35 minutes. Serve topped with desired condiments.
  5. *The ground beef makes it a bit heartier, but it can be successfully served as a main or side dish without it. Also, if omitting ground beef, another meat - such as chorizo - can be served on the side, if desired.
    *Let your own preference decide if the 2nd can of chilis will be mild or jalapeno.
