Baked Chile Relleno Casserole

"This recipe has its roots as a crock pot recipe, but I was in a hurry. Leave out the seasoned hamburger meat for a vegetarian pleaser."

    I have changed this up a little by chopping my chilies up and mixing in a can of rotel and kidney beans. YUM!

    My husband and I loved this dish !!! I did change it a bit though. I didn't use the flour, eggs, milk and water. I just layered the chilies, meat and cheeses. Then baked it until melted and bubbly. We also used tortilla chips and ate it as a dip ! Delicious!

    I had a good feeling about this recipe and I was right... it's terrific and comes together in a snap! I love chile rellenos but not the bother of making them. This will fill my craving for them at home and I will just wait until I go to a restaurant for the real deal. Thanks BC and welcome to Zaar!


Mother of three, happily unmarried to a wonderful man who uncomplainingly eats whatever experiment is put before him. Paula Deen and my mom are my culinary heroes. My mother could take a pound of hamburger or one chicken and make it feed five people and still have leftovers. How'd you do that, Mom?
