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.

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 :)

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.

Quick and easy to make.

All these recipes have sides to them it would be great to have a side note of the added calories if we were to do those sides

Easily adjustable

Great recipe! Me and my kids did this for snack and my kids asked for us to make some more! We used to have Banana Rhubarb Muffins which we found on but it's nice to try new things. I often check it out for recipes and cooking information including this website,,,,, and for different moods and occasions. Thanks for this appetizing recipe!

By the way, here's the link to the mentioned recipe:

tasty, smooth, easy to make, taste is easily adjustable, and, of course, loved by my kids

I went back over the recipe to make sure I hadn't missed anything. I hadn't.
