Easy Chiles Rellenos Casserole

“Goes nicely with a crisp salad topped with tomatoes, ripe olives and avocado slices. A few warm tortillas go nicely too.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray an 8-inch square casserole dish or baking pan with nonstick spray, or lightly rub with oil.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine egg whites, evaporated milk, and flour, whisking to blend.
  4. Place half the chiles in the casserole dish, and cover with half of the egg mixture.
  5. Reserving 1/2 cup of each type of cheese for topping, sprinkle the 1/2 of the remainder of the cheese over chiles.
  6. Layer again with the chiles, top with the remaining egg mixture, the other half of the cheese, and then cover that with the tomato sauce.
  7. Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes; then sprinkle the reserved cheese (1/2 cup of each) on top of the rellenos.
  8. Replace in the oven and continue to bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until the edges are bubbly, and the cheese is nicely melted.
  9. Allow to rest 5 minutes or so before slicing into servings.
