T.G.I.F. Dinner - May 21st? - cjs - 05-21-2010

What's on the menu for tonight??

We're all heading out for Mexican food.

Trying a new recipe for a chile rellenos casserole. I've never made much Mexican food, but seem to have a taste for it lately, so trying a few dishes. This one is baked, rather than fried, and not real heavy on the cheese.

I have NO idea. I'm alone, so who knows. I've never cooked for one.

Maryann, I would love to see your chile rellenos recipe! It is one of my favorite dishes, but since hubby shouldn't have cheese, I do not make it.

Baby backs were on sale so I am grilling those tonight. I am serving baked potato and grilled aspargus along with. Nothing exciting, but a good summerlike Friday dinner.

Guess I didn't see that extra cup of cheese when I read the recipe the first time, Theresa, but you could always leave it out. If we like this I will probably play with it a little. I had this dish once with a layer of thinly sliced tomatoes and really liked that.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
7 4 oz. cans whole green chilies -- drained

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5 whole eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Split chilies lengthwise; rinse and remove seeds. Drain on paper towels; pat dry. Stuff chilies with cheese strips. Place half of chilies in a greased 11 x 7 baking dish; sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Repeat layers.

In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, flour, salt, pepper and pepper sauce until smooth; pour over chilies. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

I make something like this one - love it.

Thanks Maryann, looks really good. I forgot about the eggs in chile rellenos too. I guess I have to make this for a crowd so hubby doesn't eat to much. Darn high cholesterol!

Try this.

Re: T.G.I.F. Dinner - May 21st? - cjs - 05-21-2010

Jean, I have another recipe similar to this one and wasn't sure where I got it. I'm usually good with giving proper credit, but somehow missed on that one. I wouldn't be surprised if it's yours.

Theresa, Ron has to start eating more heart healthy also,
and I know this one's pretty high in fat, but actually we're having a big mixed vegetable salad first, so hopefully we won't overdo.
