Chile Relleno Bake

We love Chile Relleno's, but they are usually fried. This Chile Relleno Bake give's all the flavor of a great Relleno, without the frying pan. I have added some more vegetables to the filling to give a great combination for this bake. I have used this recipe for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is a proven winner with our family. One of the features of this recipe is that it can be frozen for up to 3 months, we freeze the whole dish or individual servings. This is a great dish to bring a Mexican Fiesta into your home anytime.

  1. What a great way to make chile rellenos!

  2. I LOVE chile rellenos, but have never made them because of the frying. This recipe sounds absolutely amazing, and I love the idea of eating this for breakfast. Yum!

  3. This is absolutely positively going on my menu. We make a similar Mexican casserole but adding those chiles would really make my husband smile. ;)

  4. This looks delicious - definitely pinning on my Cinco de Mayo board! :)

  5. Hi Helen...I love Chile Rellenos, but like you, try to avoid the fried. Pinning this to make in the near future. Due to a miscommunication, I have twice as many jalapenos as I really need planted in my garden, so I'm expecting a bumper crop. I may roast some of my jalapenos and sub for the canned chiles.
    Thanks for the great idea.

  6. Delicious Love to try this chile rellenos,it is in my do list for long time, never tried it. Thanks for sharing with hearth and soul blog hop, pinning and tweeting.
