Chile Relleno Casserole
This dish was inspired by the Pioneer Woman's recipe from Food Network called "Lazy Chile Rellenos". You are supposed to use whole chiles, but I couldn't find them at the store, so decided to improvise. I also added chicken (store bought rotisserie!) to make it a heartier casserole.
Canned green chiles - I used 2 small cans
Fresh poblano pepper
1/2 red onion
2 cloves garlic
Monterrey Jack Cheese
Half & Half (or whole milk)
Smoked paprika, dried chilies, cumin, garlic powder, salt pepper
This was an amazing engagement present from my twin sister, Holly! A mortar and pestle from Williams Sonoma. It is great for grinding dried chilies!
I wanted to add an extra element and layer, so sautéed 2 fresh poblano peppers, 1/2 red onion and garlic. This went on top of the chicken and canned green chilies, and a layer of cheese.
After you have all of your layers, you add the egg mixture on top which was 5 eggs, 1 cup of half and half, a splash of chicken stock, dried chilies, and chives.
