With this recipe, you can have all the ease of cooking a casserole. But you’ll wow them with something new. And you won’t even have to go out to get the amazing flavor of a chili relleno!
Green Chilis ~ All the Flavor Without the Heat
There are many types of chilis out there. And not all of them are created equal. As I’m sure you know there are two distinct groups of chilis; HOT and won’t melt your brain. I prefer the latter. I actually like to taste my food thanks. This casserole recipe uses the more flavor, less heat green chili known as the Anaheim. The Anaheim green chili was brought to California from Mexico in the early 1900s and bred with more mellow varieties to appeal to the American palate. In other words
That’s why this casserole is ideal for the whole family. Even us wimps who don’t like hot peppers will like it! I hope your whole family will enjoy my easy chili relleno casserole recipe!
