I had a bunch of fresh poblano peppers and didn't know what to do with them. I tried this casserole and loved it! With the fresh roasted peppers and a few jalepenos for extra spice, it was FANTASTIC! This is definitely joining my regular rotation. Thank you, check out some of my recipes at www.tvisgod.com.

This is an easy dish to make. The directions were very clear and easy to follow. We loved the egg and chile flavor. I did NOT use canned chiles, but used some frozen, whole, New Mexico chiles. I left the chiles whole and just layered them with cheese between layers of chiles and cheese on top. Baked them 45 minutes and the casserole was golden brown on top. I served this with homemade picante sauce. An excellent recipe, Barb! Thanks for sharing!
