    This is such a simple dish and so pretty especially at holiday time. It's been a family favorite for years and always dissapears first when I take it to potlucks.

      I made this with 3 large fresh Poblano peppers. I also used a prepackaged Mexican cheese mixture. When I made it, I wondered whether it would be better with enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce. As it turned out, it is absolutely perfect! I cooked it just a bit longer because it was just a little runny - but not too bad. I did dry my peppers also. The extra cook time softened the fresh peppers a bit more- which was good. I will definitely make this again. I have always wanted to make stuffed Chile Relleno peppers, but with this recipe I will never need to learn! So easy - and tastes just like the ones made with eggs at restaurants! Thanks for this awesome recipe!!! Also - I thought with all the cheese it would be thick and cheesy, but to my delight - the egg mixture combined with the cheese and turned into a light fluffy, cheesy texture. Yummy!

      Thanks, Hazelruthe! Finally a GREAT recipe for this dish! I doubled the recipe and put just a pinch of cayenne, cumin, cinnamon and clove into the sauce. DELICIOUS!

      This was delicious. I used two 5 oz. cans of whole chile peppers and so used a bit less cheese but the stated amount of egg mixture. It baked up beautifully at just 45 oven runs a bit hot. No runniness, which is something I worried about and I'm sure it's the 'dry with paper towels' instruction that helped with that. I'll definitely make this again....we love chile rellenos but I hate the filling, dipping and frying. It's nice to get all the same flavors in a casserole! Thanks Hazelruthe for this recipe :)
