Chili Relleno Casserole

  • 1 pound ground beef, ground turkey, or ground pork... or sausage.chili relleno casserole
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
  • 10 roasted pasilla chilies with skins removed or 10 anaheim chilies skins removed
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 can black beans
  • Cilantro chopped for garnish
  • Avocados sliced served over casserole.
  1. In a skillet brown ground beef.  Add green pepper and onion and cook until both are tender.
  2. Add drained black beans, green chilies, salt, and spices to meat mixture and set aside.
  3. In a bowl combine eggs and milk.
  4. In a 9 x13 pan layer 1/2 of meat and roasted pasillas, sprinkle the layer with cheeses.
  5. Add another layer of meat, pasillas and another layer of cheese. Leave remaining cheees to use on top after baking.
  6. Pour egg milk mixture over the top of the cheese.
  7. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 7 more minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and let sit about 10 minutes before serving.  Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with sliced avocados.
  9. You could eliminate the meat mixture and make this a veggie/egg dish!  I made up 3 of these and froze 2 of them.  Thaw the night before in the refrigerator and they bake up perfect the next day!
  10. Enjoy!

Sounds great.  We're coming over and we'll bring the wine.  It is actually way too long a commute.
