Chiles Rellenos Guillermos

This recipe is from the Green Chile Bible. As always I have made some changes, so if you want to see the original, you gotta buy the book. Seriously, buy it anyway. The aren't kidding, it has everything you need to know about the chile. I used Anaheim chiles in making this recipe, but you can use any larger size chile. Just be sure you get a spicy temperature that matches what your family can take. You could also used canned or jarred chiles.

A word for my mother. Yes, I cooked and ate a chiles relleno casserole. Yes, I refused to even look at a chiles relleno casserole when I was a child. I am sorry. I know my pickiness was a pain in the butt. Don't feel too bad, I am being paid back ten fold with my own picky eaters.

10 green chiles, peeled
1/2 pound 2% Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 10 strips
1 cup 2% cheddar cheese
3 eggs
1/4 cup (scant) all-purpose flour
3/4 cup low fat milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Roast the chiles over a flame until the skins are charred, place them into a paper sack or a container with a lid and allow them to cool off. When they are cool enough to handle, cut off the stems, remove the seeds and peel off the skin. You may want to do this while wearing gloves or under running water. Spread the peeled chiles out onto paper towels and pat dry.
  2. Move you oven rack to the lower middle position and preheat your oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  3. Slip a strip of Monterey Jack cheese into each on of the chiles (if your chiles fell apart while peeling them. Don't worry just stack the cheese between the two halves) and place them in a single layer into your prepared pan. Sprinkle them with the cheddar cheese.
  4. Beat the eggs, and add the flour; beating until completely smooth. Add the milk, salt, and black pepper and continue beating until smooth. Carefully pour this mixture over the chiles.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean and the top is a golden brown.

  1. Is this really Amy? The one who spurned MY Chiles Relleno casserole when she was a kid.

    I love her anyway!

    Guess who?
