“A friend made this for breakfast at our MOPS meetings (Mothers of Preschoolers). They were always a hit!! Very YUMMY but not low fat! I make them every year for our Christmas morning relative open house (if you have kids, you know what I mean- all the grandparents and friends stop by to bring the kids something...). Not a big hit with the kids but the adults love it- and it is REALLY EASY!. Of course, it could be made for dinner as well. However, this tastes nothing like authentic Chile Rellenos. Yummy- but not authentic. PS- Not spicy unless you substitute in another kid of chile for the diced green canned chilies.”
