"This was an out-of-the-ordinary, simple, and lowish-carb (if you care about such things, which I don't) main dish. My family liked it, even the two-year-old."

"This recipe is a simplified version of stuffed chile rellenos but it tastes just as good. The cans of chopped green chiles save A LOT of time as you don't need to roast your own peppers.

We like to put a little ketchup on top of each serving; it gives it that last little touch."
