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.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

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

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
