Chile Relleno Bake


This Chile Relleno bake is whole green chilies stuffed with Monterey Jack cheese, then baked in an egg batter and covered in more cheese.




This version of the classic Mexican dish Chiles Rellenos skips the extra work of stuffing and frying whole chiles.







Ingredients in Chile Relleno Bake

Chile peppers: I use canned Whole Chile peppers, which saves time. If you have the time, you can roast  Anaheim or Poblano peppers for this recipe.

Cheese: Colby Jack, Monterey Jack, or Oaxaca Cheese are great choices to use for this recipe.

Eggs, milk, flour, salt, cayenne pepper (optional), baking powder. 




How to Make Chile Relleno Bake

Preheat the oven to 350˚.

Drain the peppers, and stuff cheese in each chile, and place in greased casserole baking dish



Combine the eggs and milk; then add the flour, cayenne pepper, baking powder, and salt and beat until smooth.

Pour the egg mixture over the chiles. Cover with the shredded cheddar cheese



Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with rice and beans, topped with guacamole or Pico de Gallo
