I LOVE when I make a dinner that gets approval from everyone at the dinner table. This Chile Relleno Casserole fits that bill. Traditionally, Chile Relleno Casserole is made using whole chiles but I happen to always have canned diced green chiles on hand so it makes it that much easier for me to use them.

We had no leftovers of this casserole, it was THAT good! This casserole has layers of cheesy green chile goodness sandwiched between tortillas and submerged in an egg mixture. Together all of these components make one out of this world dinner that will become a new staple at the dinner table!

    This recipe looks easy & delicious. I "assume" it calls for corn, not flour, tortillas?

      I actually used flour tortillas but you are welcome to use corn if you prefer them :)

    Green chilies are not listed in the directions of your recipe. Do you add them into the egg mixture?

    Hi -this recipe looks good! I noticed you used canned green chilies.
    Can I substitute diced fresh poblanos so that it is more of an authentic relleno? If so, should I cook them first?

  12. Cindy Romeis

    How much heat do the chilies add?
