Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Split the chiles open, and spread half the chiles into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Layer with the Cheddar cheese, and top with the rest of the canned chiles. Whisk together the eggs, flour, and evaporated milk in a bowl. Pour the mixture over the chiles and cheese.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 30 minutes; remove casserole, and top with the Monterey Jack cheese. Pour the green chili salsa over the top; return to oven, and bake until the cheese is melted, about 15 more minutes.

SO good! I actually made this with fresh chilis instead of canned and there was no problem. It was great!

I didn't need to make this as I have made chile relleno casseroles for decades (I'm 60 and first started making a variation of this when I was in high school in the 1960's). Through the years I've experimented with various combinations of cheeses, sauces, and chiles (fresh poblano chiles that are roasted are best) and this recipe works except for one hugely important thing: there is WAY too much green enchilada sauce on top! Perhaps this was a typo but 20 ounces is ridiculous; what is needed is a thin coating on top: 8 to 10 ounces is more than sufficient for a 9 by 13 inch dish.

OH MY! This is awesome. Im not a great cook, but Im very picky with taste! I try lots of recipes off here and most are ok-good. This is YUMMY. Its perfectly hot, great texture- I am on a diet and had to have a second plate. Only suggestion is if you like a little crispy cheese cook a little longer. Great JOB BON BON!

This casserole was amazing!!! I already bought the ingredients to make it again. I did cut the cheese in 1/2 though, and it was very cheesy and delicious!

Absolutely delicious!! My Mom and I made this for my Dad. He loves Chili Rellenos. We did a few things differently. We used 12 fresh Anaheim chilis that we sliced, roasted and skinned. I also seasoned the milk mixture with a little onion powder, garlic powder and a pinch of salt and pepper. Dad said it was the best he's had! It was delicious.

I cut this recipe in 1/2, baked in an 8 inch square glass pan but otherwise made it exactly like published. Delicious! Cut in 9 squares and, using restraint, my husband & I ate 6 of them!

Very yummy and easy! I added shredded rotisserie chicken to make it more of a complete meal. Serve with salsa, sour cream and guacamole for toppings. The measurements weren't right...needed more green chiles.

I make a similar casserole that everyone always raves about. This one sounds really good too and I did get some good ideas to incorporate into my own recipe....thanks for the post!
