This chili relleno casserole is really full of flavor! I have been making this dish since I came up with it in the 6th grade. It was a tough time when my dad was in the hospital and my mom was there with him taking care of him. I was trying to make meals interesting and different and came up with this one.
It is a really quick way to make dinner and can be easily warmed up for leftovers and even eaten at breakfast. Chili Relleno is not normally served in casserole form when you order it out but this is a really great way to enjoy that taste and cut down on some of the work.
I would use the diced chilies if you have little ones that are not used to eating chilies. These are not spicy but you could use hot ones if that is what you like. I used a mild salsa then but now use a warmer one. Try this dish out and make it your own. Let me know what you think of it!
