When I made this dish last weekend I had a good size serving, and then I couldn’t stop thinking about how good and cheesy it tasted. I finally gave in and had another big serving! Richard also loved it so much he asked me to make it again last night.This recipe is a combination of two different recipes from a cookbook that I bought over 20 years ago, and I also added my own little twist to it. They sold the cookbook to help buy new playground equipment for my daughter Brandy’s school, John C. Fremont. I know that I made a few dishes from it when I first bought it all those years ago, but I haven’t looked at in years. I came across it the other day when I was looking for another cookbook, and decided take a look through it, and I found the two recipes. Both recipes called for can chilies, but it is easy to just roast your own.
Now I have made chili rellenos before, the authentic way. But this is so much easier!
Chili Relleno Bake
6 poblano peppers3 cups grated Monterey jack cheese
1/3 cup milk
½ cup flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
Turn the oven broiler on high. Place the chilies on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Roast chilies 2 to 3 inches from the heat until they blistered and charred about 5 to 8 minutes turn and repeat on other side.
Place roasted chilies in large bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let stand 20 minutes before peeling. Peel each chili removing all skin; split open and remove seeds; set aside
In a large bowl whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt and baking powder. Pour 1/3 of the batter into a 13x9 inch baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Layer 3 of the chilies on top of the batter; top with 2 cups of the grated cheese; then add the remaining 3 chilies.
Pour remaining batter over chilies. Top with the remaining cheese.
