I found this Green Chile Relleno Casserole Recipes in a local newspaper more than 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??).
Tip-Also one important tip when making this is to be sure and whip the egg whites well, that makes a great consistency when you gently fold in the remaining ingredients

Hi Evelyn, could you clarify if the egg yolks are used when beating the remaining ingredients or do you discard


Saturday 13th of June 2020

The egg yolks are used in the batter with the milk and the flour just prior to beating and adding the egg whites. The egg whites create a fluffy consistency after it is added to the batter last. I do need to update and make this more clear. Thanks for letting me know.

This looks great! I will be making it, but have a couple of questions. The description mentions an easy chile rellano sauce, but I don't see ingredients or instructions for that, am I just overlooking it? Also, do you use the egg yolks in this, or just the egg whites?

Thank you so much!!

I don't believe I mentioned chile rellano sauce only Chile Relleno Casserole. There is no sauce, the chiles provide all the chile flavor that you need. Pinky Promise
