We just can’t get enough casserole recipes these days. They are perfect for when you need a quick and easy recipe that the family will love. Plus, they usually involve ingredients that you already have in your refrigerator or pantry. Add in ground beef, chicken, rice or potatoes, a vegetable and some cheese and you have yourself a casserole as well as a new family favorite.
This delicious casserole recipe comes from our friends the Two Old Crabs and will make your casserole dish a real fiesta. The typical Chili Rellenos recipe is a poblano pepper stuffed with cheese and minced meats and then deep fried. With your first bite you can taste the subtle spice of the poblano pepper mixed with the melted cheese, and it is incredible. The Two Old Crabs have modified the traditional recipe and made it into an easy Mexican casserole that taste just as good as the real thing. If you love cheese and Mexican cuisine, try Easy Chili Rellenos Casserole and let us know what you think. Enjoy!
