Chilies Rellenos Casserole

"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)"

    As written, the recipe is not at all spicy and was a bit doughy for my taste. I made a second batch (half the recipe), using 7 oz of green chiles and 1/3 cup flour. I'd reduce the flour further. I sauteed about 5 oz fresh chorizo sausage with the onions and layered this on top of the chiles. Like another reviewer, I toasted my tortillas, but I just throw them on a gas burner and let them sit there for a few seconds. This version was a 4 star for me. I thought the filling was more stodgy than quiche-like, and will reduce flour further

    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.<br/>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 is a keeper!<br/>*Made for 2010 Football Pool*
