"I found 9 RZ recipes for this type dish, but none at all like it & it sounds so good to me! I found it in the "Tasty Holiday Gifts" cookbook SusieQusie spotted at a bookstore in Dallas recently. From their intro: "This spicy Chilies Rellenos Casserole is a great new way to serve eggs at Easter & it's easy to reheat for a delicious brunch dish! The quiche-like casserole features a "crust" of green chilies + a cheesy egg filling & is served w/sour cream & salsa." Since this is a meatless dish, I see spicy grd pork patties as a good side or even some yummy & well-cooked chorizo sausage as a good add to the dish. I would personally make this yr-round if I could, but I rarely see green chilies here & may have to wait for another visit to SQ in Dallas to enjoy it. (Times were not given & have been estimated)"

"Being a Texas girl I can share a quick fix to adding more of the corn tortilla "flavor". Toast the strips of corn tortilla first in the oven with non stick olive oil spray. This keeps it from blending in with wet items too much. Also, if you don't have the fabu...Chili relleno, use serranos. I also like to add tomatoes, and cilantro, too! Yum."
"This was very yummy. It definitely had more of a quiche like texture but the flavors were awesome. I'm putting this in my brunch cookbook because I think it would be perfect for that!"
"The dish was easy to put together and pretty tasty, but very bland - it definitely needs more seasoning! Next time, I would add more salt & pepper, and use a spicier salsa for garnish.
Made for ZWT8."
"Delicious! I've made quite a few chile relleno casseroles but none have had corn tortillas in them, so I was intrigued by their use in this recipe. I cut my tortillas up into 1/2" pieces and that worked very well. This dish goes together very quickly and easily, so it made a flavorful, quick dinner. I served this with "light" sour cream and homemade salsa. The leftovers were served for breakfast the next morning. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is a keeper!

"I used some roasted/peeled pasilla peppers in place of the green chilies - this was pretty good. Too spicey for the kids though....I too wished the corn tortilla added something to the egg - but it just sort of disappeared into it..."
"Served with Chipotle Tabasco sauce, this is great! I used eggbeaters and nonfat sour cream."
"I made this for my co-workers breakfast. Everyone loved it. It was very easy to make. I baked it the night before and re-heated it in the morning. I served it with salsa and sour cream and my recipe#200730. I was a little disappointed that the cheese and tortilla kinda became combined into the egg mixture and didn't stand out. I would like to try this with diced green chilies stirred into the egg mixture and perhaps layered tortillas and extra cheese over the top. Made for Holiday Tag."
"MMMMM. This was very tasty. Fast to prepare with little clean up! My kind of recipe. The only thing I will change next time is to put the chili's in the middle instead of the bottom. Just a personal thing I think but I think it would make a pretty presentation and would impart more chili flavor through the dish. Very nice twissis! Thanks for sharing!"
"Delicious dish! It was very simple to assemble earlier in the day which made dinner a snap. I did use flour tortillas as I was out of corn, but it was great this way as well. Thanks twissis for another winner."
"I made this recently and it was a delicious dish. I'm planning to make it for my Christmas Fiesta and serve along side my #186079Enchilada Soup. Thanks for sharing, it will no doubt be a great addition. ~V"
