Lazy Chiles Rellenos

12 Oct

I’ve wanted to try making chiles rellenos for awhile now. My grocery store NEVER has poblanos! Well finally the store had nice big green beautiful poblano peppers. I Bought six because I couldn’t remember how many the recipe called for. This turned out disastrous. The picture doesn’t even do the disaster justice! I used 2% milk instead of whole maybe that’s why it turned out so watery??? I even roasted my the peppers myself instead of using canned! And I used a smaller pan so it took FOREVER to set! I’ll have to try a different recipe next time! Thankfully I had made some tj’s mini chicken Tamalitos too!

Cut chilies in half and add a single layer of chilies on the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Top chilies with half the grated cheese.
Repeat with another layer of chilies and another layer of cheese.
Pour egg mixture all over the top.
