RC (Reduced Calorie) Chili Relleno Casserole
I love Mexican food. LOVE Mexican food. Out of all the cheesy spicy goodness to choose from, one of my favorite dishes is Chile Relleno. A friend gave me a recipe for a chile relleno casserole that uses 2 pounds, TWO POUNDS, of cheese as well as numerous whole eggs, and condensed milk. On occasion, it is worth every bite. However for regular consumption I needed something a little less calorie dense. Enter my RC (reduced calorie) Chile Relleno Casserole.
