I really don't recall where I first came across this recipe. I've had it in my files for years and fix it for my family quite often.—Carolyn Gorrell, Portales, New Mexico


  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chiles
  • 1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk


  1. Sprinkle green chiles in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Top with beef. In a large bowl, combine the cheese, flour and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk; stir into cheese mixture until blended. Pour over the beef. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Perfect Partners: Make a tossed salad with avocado slides and tomato wedges, drizzle with creamy ranch dressing. Serve with Chili Rellenos.

    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.
