Chiles Rellenos

-5 Whole Roasted Chiles

-1 cup of Cheese (either Cheddar, Colby Jack or Monterey Jack Cheese)

-3 Large Eggs

-1 cup of Milk

-1/4 tsp Paprika

-1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper

-Salt and Pepper to taste


First preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease a 8x8 baking dish. Then lay your whole chile peppers on a cutting board and slice them in half and pat them dry with a paper towel. Lay a layer of 5 chile halves and sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese on top. Repeat with another layer of chiles and cheese. In a bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Pour them over the chiles in the baking dish. Place the baking dish into a rimmed baking sheet and fill it with 1/2 inch of water in the oven. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the chiles rellenos are completely set. Serve with warm tortillas or eat as a sandwhich with 2 pieces of toast!
