Introduction

This was very good and much easier than stuffing the cheese into the chiles, but with pretty much the same flavor of the traditional method. If you don't care for hot food, you could use plain Monterey jack cheese instead of the pepper-jack. For myself I added more pepper.

    Awesome!!! Made it last night with steamed fresh chilies. My husbands favorite meal at a mexican resturante is Chile Rellanos and he was thrilled by this. I also added extra lean ground beef and some pinto beans on the side. - 8/12/11

    Great recipe as is. I add ground beef per family request. add to pan of sautéed onion and garlic. When browned add 2 pkts. Sazon, cumin and oregano to taste. Add the beef after the 2nd layer of chilies and before the cream, eggs and salt. Add cheddar. Cook in 8X12 pan or dish. Same time and temp. - 7/24/14
