Chile Relleno (Green Chile), Chicken and Cheese Casserole. 

I saw the original recipe just a few days ago on Facebook.  I wanted to add my own touches (like green bell pepper, for flavor without heat) and make it more substantial so that it would be more of a meal… chicken, that worked. Here I give you what some might call… A Lazy Chile Relleno (and Chicken) Casserole. Pair it with a salad and walla, a super delish meal can be had! 

Layer 1. 

Heavy cream and egg mix. 

Ready to layer with the mix.

Time to bake 


Looking forward to cutting into this! 

Ingredients…

  • 1 cup cooked, chopped up, chicken mixed with a 1/3 cup of verde (green chile) sauce of your liking. 
  • 3 Anaheim or pasilla chiles, roasted, skinned and seeded. (you can use 1 can of whole green chiles if you like)
  • 2 roasted bell peppers, skinned and seeded

  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream 
  • 4 eggs

  2. In a 8 x 8 casserole dish, place a layer of green chiles and bell peppers. 
  3.  Add chicken on top of chiles.
  4. Top with 1/2 the shredded cheese. 
  5. Add another layer of green chiles, bell peppers, chicken and cheese. 
  6. In a bowl beat eggs, heavy cream, salt, garlic powder and baking powder. Pour this on top of chili layers. 
  7. Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes or until done. Test with a toothpick, stick the toothpick in the center if it comes out clean, it’s done. 

Let rest 5/10 minutes before cutting. 


And walla! Super yummy, light in texture with tons of good flavor. 

Enjoy. g.
