Recipe by Tres Piernas Hombre
Chile Relleno Casserole has been a huge hit here in the "Loops". I was making it to intialy accomodate a person that prefers a vegan diet. Use Yogourt in place of milk for added flavour.
- 4 eggs
- 5 stalks asparagus
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 4 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 6 tablespoons salsa (optional)
- 4 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
- 3 (7 ounce) cans jalapeno peppers or 3 (7 ounce) cans chipotle chiles
Directions See How It's Made
- Lightly grease 9x13 baking dish.
- Beat eggs, milk and spices in medium bowl to blend.
- Arrange chiles from one can on bottom covering bottom completely.
- Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese.
