Chili Rellenos Casserole


My husband makes the best Chili Rellenos, they are perfect, but they are fairly labor intensive.  I saw a recipe for Chili Rellenos Casserole on the Taste of Home website and decided to give it a try.  In my mind it would be more like a Lasagna with several layers. I had to change it up a bit to make that happen.

It was delicious and made for excellent leftovers!
  • 1 large can whole green chilies, drained and sliced down the middle
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, Cheddar or what you have
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder, chili pepper,  black pepper and Cumin to taste (I like my meat flavorful)
  • I small can of tomato sauce
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • Split chilies and remove seeds; dry on paper towels. Grease a 9X13 baking dish and pour 1/3 of the tomato sauce on the bottom of the dish, cover completely.Arrange 1/3 of the chilies on the bottom of a greased  baking dish with tomato sauce. Top with cheese. In a skillet, cook beef and onion, garlic and spices  over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Spoon 1/3 the meat over the cheese.  Continue with two more layers, ending with cheese 
  • In a bowl, beat milk, eggs, flour, salt and pepper until smooth; pour over mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with Sour Cream if you wish
