Chilies Rellenos Casserole Recipe

Friday, September 20, 2013
Yes I know this isn't anywhere near an Italian recipe, however, I absolutely loved the flavors in this. It was exciting to see this bake all together like a Mexican Style Potpie! Who can resist?


1 pound ground turkey or beef
3 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 16 oz can refried beans (I used fat-free)
2  cups or more of blended cheddar cheeses
1 or 2 cans of green chilies
1 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
optional: cayenne pepper
1 cup canned corn

Topping (this is top crust)
1 1/2  cups milk or half and half
1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons hot sauce
4 large eggs

Beat eggs, hot sauce and gradually add the flour and salt set aside.

Brown meat I cooked it in the corn juice instead of draining it, add the garlic. Stir in all the spices when meat is browned. Add the refried beans.

In a 13x9 pan. Spread the green chilies out over the bottom of an oiled sprayed pan. Top the chilies with around 1 cup of shredded cheese. Spread the meat of the top, corn and add the rest of the shredded cheese.

Pour the egg mixture on top and bake for around 1 hour or until set in a preheated oven of 350  degrees. I couldn't wait to let it sit for a few minutes we just dived right into this one and one more things it's great reheated the next day if you have any left!
