Easy and very good. I used fresh pasilla chiles. It's a lot more work than canned but I like the texture better. I served this with a really spicy salsa, homemade refried beans, and a jicama/oranges salad. What I liked about this casserole compared to others on this site was the egg whites. They made the dish light and more similar to a traditional chile relleno.

This was a lower fat and easier to make alternative to traditional chile rellenos - all the flavor without all the work! We will definitely be making this again. UPDATE: This time I made this with queso cotija and cheddar (because that's what we had on hand) and it was delicious. Having two cheeses made the flavor a little more complex and interesting.
