Chiles Rellenos Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by flower7

I adopted this from the Recipezaar account. It was good as is, but I had to make a couple changes for it to work for me. Came out a little runny (maybe because I used skim milk), so may need some additional adjustment. I would probably change out the mozzarella for Monterey jack or a Mexican cheese next time also. Good served with sour cream.

I admit I did make some changes. I used 1/2 cheddar 1/2 Monterrey jack, I also used a 12 oz can of evaporated milk, cut the eggs down to two and only used 2 Tbsp.of flour. For the topping I didn't have green so I used red. It was absolutely delicious, despite my changes! Thanks Flower, for posting! Made for Spring PAC 2013
