Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Chile Rellenos Casserole

Cooking

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is CHILES RELLENOS CASSEROLE!

Chiles Rellenos are one of my favorite items on the Mexican menu, and I almost always get a side order at my favorite local restaurant which, luckily, is less than five minutes from my house. For those days I just can’t dash down the street, I wanted to have a recipe that would give me the flavor I want at home without too much fuss and muss. This Chiles Rellenos Casserole is the bomb!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
