This recipe comes from Better Home and Gardens Special Interest Publications entitled Low Calorie and Low-Fat Recipes which was published in 1994. When going through some old magazines recently the recipe resurfaced and I decided to post it for safe keeping. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It is a good alternative to higher fat, higher cholesterol recipes.

Thanks Paula for a delicious casserole. We all loved this and ate every bit of chile rellenos. I don't usually like to make this kind of casserole with eggs and cheese, but if you use low fat milk and low fat cheese, it still comes out very tasty. My family already wants to know when are you making this again. Ha, Ha.
This is the best egg casserole you will ever taste! If you use lowfat of all the ingredients (and nonfat milk), you will still get a tasty treat! Plus the serving size is filling!
I'm also basing this on my own tastes, because it is something my less adventurous eaters made their minds up on before they even gave it a try. The nice thing about it was I threw it together and placed it in the fridge covered then baked it this morning and it turned out just fine. I actually tucked some in a warm corn tortilla with a bit of fresh salsa and some avocado. I think I will take it to church for our fellowship period between Sunday School and church.
