This was good, not great. Next time maybe I'll add diced onions between the cheese and chilis using whole canned chilis opened flat in a single layer. Then maybe add a little of the chili juice to the egg mixture. Also, for Christmas brunch make in an 8inch by 12 inch baking pan increasing ingredients to accommodate the size change. (15-20 for brunch-big family;~)] Also, serve with sour cream and salsa for toppings. I know these changes aren't chili rellano-like but add flavor and texture.

While this recipe is ok, take the time to roast and peel/seed a few poblanos for a more authentic chili relleno flavor.

Easy and fantastic. I have a recipe for shrimp rellenos, which is time consuming! I followed the recipe and added shrimp tossed with a little Cajun seasoning after adding the chilies and topped with the cheeses. I always have a bag of Mexican Cheeses, using that made this recipe quick, delicious. Definitely will made again.

I have not made this yet but love chili rellenos and am excited to prepare it. I am curious: a couple of you mentioned having it as an appetizer. How does that work? Small squares? As a dip?

I must be missing something -- because I tried this recipe and followed it to the letter and this was not good. My qualms are thus: the green chilies alone are not enough seasoning. This is just cheese and peppers? Nothing else to add flavor? Then, the egg and flour combo just ended up making it feel like a bad breakfast casserole. I tend to go through a process with recipes, make it once following the recipe exactly and then tweak what I thought didn't work. This recipe won't make it to the second stage though. It just didn't even come close to feeling like a promising dish.
