Chile Relleno Casserole


I found this recipe in a local newspaper 30 years ago and my family still loves it.  
It is requested (please make that chile cheesy thingy!!)  at every family reunion  and if fact, I make two pans and it's the first dish to empty (may go to three next reunion??).
  It is so simple but it has an awesome flavor but of course how can you go wrong with loads of cheese and yummy green chiles!

Chile Relleno Casserole
Ingredients
  • 4 (7oz) cans whole green chiles or 1 (27oz) can whole green chiles
  • 1 lb cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 lb Monterrey Jack cheese, grated
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 T Flour
Instructions
1. Seed chiles and lay 1/2 in bottom of 9 X 11-inch baking dish, sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top of chilies,
2. Layer remaining chilies and sprinkle grated Jack cheese on top
3. Separate egg whites, beat remaining ingredients except egg whites together.
4. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff and fold into wet ingredients.
5. Gently pour over top of chile casserole
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, covered, uncover and bake 5-10 minutes longer to brown.

  3. How crazy is it that I see a picture of a dish that looks yummy on Pinterest and when I click on it...up pops a picture of my long lost bff and her husband. Y'all look amazing and I can't wait until your travels bring you to southwest LA. And can't wait to try your Chile Relleno Casserole. Thank you my friend.

  6. I am visiting from the Uncommon Designs party! This looks so wonderful!! I lived in New Mexico when I was little. I ate chile rellenos from the time I was about 2 :) My mom would roast chiles that we would get from chile farms and make rellenos and enchiladas. Such good memories, thank you so much for posting this. I will pin and give it a try!!
