this afternoon i made a chili relleno casserole for lunch using fresh green chilies we had roasted the other day. here it is step by step...
here are the roasted green chilies. i peeled and seeded them.
i buttered the baking dish, spread out and arranged the chilies and covered them with a layer of thinly sliced colby jack cheese.
in a glass measuring cup i beat 3 eggs with a fork, then added 1/2 cup milk, 1 1/2 TBSP flour and 1 tsp. baking powder. salt and pepper to taste. and mixed it again with the fork.
i poured it over the chili cheese layers. lumps are not a problem. embrace the lumps, people.
then i added a top layer of cheese.
...and baked it at 350* for 25 minutes. we had some homemade beans and tossed them in a foil pan and into the oven to reheat. we were so hungry and looking forward to lunch that i forgot to take a photo while it was still in the dish! i did consider taking one of it empty. but we were enjoying our lunch and psych episode too much.
oh - ev's homemade salsa and sour cream were the perfect toppings. i hope you enjoyed the journey. bon appetite.
sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
