    CalicoCandy's Note:

    Captures the taste of Chile Rellenos without the hassle involved. Spicy enough to be interesting but not "hot" at all. I use just a sprinkle of cayenne, no Tabasco. The seasoning comes from the Chorizo.

      I'm not a fan :( I was really expecting this to taste like chile relleno, but it really just tastes like a quiche, and the chile flavors disappear in all those eggs. maybe using more chiles and less eggs would help...

      Maybe this will be helpful. I happen to know that Monterey Jack Cheese is what the Mexican Restaurant uses. Could somebody submit a photo for this recipe?

      Great recipe and oh so easy and quick to fix. Great flavors and served with sour cream and a good salsa plus salad is just a great meal. Thanks for a really flavorful recipe. Marty from Michigan
