Everyone gets an individual portion with this vegetarian, Tex-Mex mini casserole. A normal-size casserole like this would take close to an hour to bake--these are ready in half the time. Heatproof ramekins are a cook's best friend--we use them all the time to hold ingredients while cooking. You can buy them at most grocery stores. Source: EatingWell Magazine, March/April 2007

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat eight 6-ounce or four 10-ounce heatproof ramekins with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.

    Advertisement
  • Equally divide green chiles, corn and scallions among the ramekins. Top each with cheese. Whisk milk, egg whites, eggs and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the ramekins.

  • Bake the mini casseroles until the tops begin to brown and the eggs are set, about 25 minutes for 6-ounce ramekins and about 35 minutes for 10-ounce ramekins.

Tips

Equipment: Eight 6-ounce or four 10-ounce heatproof ramekins

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

misleading serving size I think the recipe description shouldn't say everyone gets an individual portion if you use 2 ramekins but it's 4 servings. Read More

Great dish. I made this the first time at a friend's house to go with something she was fixing. it was rated 10 out of 10 by all of us. it looks so good when it comes out of the oven. If I make it for just my husband and I I will probably add some jalapeno. Pros: Fairly easy looks good taste better. Read More

I thought these smelled and tasted amazing!! I didn't do a great job at draining and patting dry the chiles because they ended up a tad watery. I added salt & pepper to the finished relleno and some simple hot sauce and it was fabulous! Definitely a great breakfast to wake up to:) Read More

Add Spice and It Will Be Nice! I made this recipe and it was delcious...but I added my own seasoning! If made exactly per the directions I probably wouldn't have liked it hence the lower rating. I added curry cumin chiptle pepper powder and garlic salt (I don't measure but if I had to guess I would say a teaspoon or two). I imagine some cilantro and other various chilis would be good too. Ultimately it should be seasoned to fit your personal spicy level just be warned that if you don't add anything it'll be really bland! Another note: I see no reason to use more egg whites than whole eggs unless you're trying to be particularly healthy. I used up my egg mixture on the first few so I just mixed a few more whole eggs together to fill my last couple of ramekins and I honestly can't tell the difference. I also accidently put the cheese on last (on top) and it still turned out fine. Pros: Quick and easy to make. Cons: Recipe needed modifaction to add flavor Read More

This recipe did not let me down - it was so delicious!! After reading other chile relleno casserole recipes online I decided to add 2 Tablespoons of flour and 2 teaspoons of chili powder. It was fabulous but would have been wonderful without my additions also. I had 7oz. ramekins and the casseroles were done in about 30 minutes. A very simple very EASY dinner. This will definitely be going into my recipe file. Read More

We loved this but I was a little puzzled about the egg mixture. I used the correct size ramekins but there was way more egg mixture than would fit in there. I made scrambled eggs from the left overs! Read More

This was ok. My family really wasn't impressed with it. It was much better with salsa. My husband tried it with the left over taco salad (also on this site) and salsa and made nachos from it and loved it my 4yr old also loved it that way. Read More

I didn't have small ramekins so I cooked it in a large casserole pan and it worked perfectly. I also added chicken for some extra protein. After it was cooked I added jalapenos sour cream and salsa and divided it into tortillas for breakfast burritos. YUM! Read More

Thought this was great. Does need a litle seasoning with salt and pepper. Make sure you squeeze all th eliquids out of th echiles as there was some residual liquid in th ebottom of the dish. Great breakfast dish and would be a great brunch dish as well. Read More

pretty good I liked this recipe. I didn't have ramekins so I put all the egg mixture into a medium sized pyrex container and put it in the oven. I cooked it longer than the directions stated since I only used one container. It turned out pretty well and was yummy:) I put some salsa over top and ate it. The next morning I used the leftovers to make breakfast burritos and they were great. Read More
