Chicken Chile Relleno Casserole Recipe

When I first was introduced to this recipe I honestly had no idea what a Chile Relleno was.  Can you believe I actually thought about taking leftover Chile Relleno and making this dish?  NO WAY – there weren’t any leftovers when I made my own earlier this week.   By adding chicken and a few other ingredients this will become your favorite casserole to whip up when you are craving a yummy Mexican meal and can’t get out to the local restaurant. Take advantage of the printable recipe option below.

It wasn’t until I had a Chile Relleno that I appreciated this recipe!  Have you had one at your local Mexican restaurant.  They are super tasty and I LOVE how my friend Bari made this a meal.  What a creative idea and super easy to put together for a family meal.  Please check out the printable recipe option below.
