Chile Rellenos Casserole

One of my favorite ingredients to add to a home cooked meal is diced chiles as I love the extra flavor they add to savory dishes. I found this recipe on Pinterest *of course* and knew it was something I couldn't wait to recreate.


1 lb. of extra lean ground turkey
1/4 onion, diced
2 cans of diced green chiles
1 and 1/2 cups of reduced fat cheddar cheese
2 eggs
3/4 cup of skim milk
1/8 cup of flour
1 tsp. of cumin
1/2 tsp. of pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Cook ground turkey and onion until the meat is fully cooked
Spray casserole dish with non-stick spray
Line the bottom of the dish with chiles
Layer the cooked meat and onion on top of the chiles, and top with cheese
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and eggs, then add the flour, cumin, and pepper and mix well.
Pour milk mixture over the casserole, and bake for 35-40 minutes at 375 degrees

  3. I need to buy one of those meat thingies you're using for the meat lol!! This sounds so good! Perfect to curb that craving for mexican food!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
