    From Like Grandma Used To Make by Reader's Digest, c. 1996. This baked casserole is easier (and healthier) than traditional chilies rellenos.

      DH is a HUGE fan of Chile Rellenos. I, however am not a huge fan of all the work that goes into a battered/breaded dish like that. This was a great compromise. I will probably use more cheese next time, though. The kids were not as enthralled by this one, though that is mostly due to the pepper. DD7 ate the middle out of her pepper, but DS3 wouldn't touch it at all. I will definitely be making this again, but next time I won't forget the salsa! Made for Gnome Tag!

      This is wonderful! I still prefer the traditional method of making chile rellenos where I blister the peppers in a hot oven and stuff cheese into the whole chile. The next time I make this recipe that is exactly what I'd do! I prefer problanos, and DH anaheims, so I made two of each. Thanks, NELady! Made for PRMR.

      Really enjoyed this! I subbed low fat cheeses. The only other change is I microwaved the chiles in chicken broth rather than get out a big pot. Thanks!
