This is a recipe I found on I added and took out a few things, because you just can't have Chile Relleno's without cheese!

The original recipe has raisins and almonds, which sounds like it would work well in this recipe, but hubby won't eat.

I top half with pepperjack cheese for hubby and the other half with Cheddar for those with more tender tastebuds.
