Savory Chiles Rellenos - Home & Family

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place poblano peppers on a baking sheet and turn the broiler to high. Broil each side of the pepper for 2-3 minutes, until the skins are blistered and black.
  2. Remove peppers; put them in a paper bag; and allow them to sit for 5-7 minutes, until the peppers are cool enough to handle. (The paper bag allows the skins to steam and separate from the flesh of pepper.)) Remove skins and seeds.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, flour, cream, salt, and pepper. To assemble the casserole, butter a 9-by-13 glass baking dish, and add one-third of the egg mixture, one-third of the peppers, and one-third of the cheeses. Do this twice more, and finish with cheese. To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees, and remove casserole from the fridge at least 10-15 minutes before baking. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes, until eggs are set and the cheese is melted.
