Chile Relleno Squares Recipe

My family requests this dish regularly - it's easy to prepare and makes a nice hors d'oeuvre or complement to a Mexican or Spanish meal. A friend I worked with shared the recipe with me several years ago.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour


  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Sprinkle half of each of the cheeses onto bottom of a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Layer with chilies and remaining cheeses.
  • 2. Whisk together eggs, milk and flour; pour over top. Bake, uncovered, until set, 25-30 minutes. Cool 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 16 servings.
