  • Author: Centsible Cooking


This delectable dish combines the rich flavors of roasted poblano peppers, gooey cheese, and a savory egg mixture, creating a delightful and easy-to-make casserole that will have your taste buds dancing with joy.


  • 6 large poblano peppers
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional, for garnish)
  • Salsa (optional, for serving)


  1. Roast and Peel the Poblano Peppers:
    • Preheat your broiler. Place the poblano peppers on a baking sheet and broil, turning occasionally, until the skin is charred and blistered.
    • Transfer the roasted peppers to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let them steam for about 15 minutes.
    • Peel the skin off the peppers, remove the seeds, and cut them into wide strips.
  2. Prepare the Casserole Base:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
    • In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs and then gradually add the flour mixture, whisking until smooth.
    • Add the milk and sour cream to the egg mixture, whisking until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Casserole:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish. Spread half of the poblano strips evenly over the bottom of the dish.
    • Sprinkle half of the Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses over the peppers.
    • Pour half of the egg mixture over the cheese and peppers.
    • Repeat the layers with the remaining poblano strips, cheese, and egg mixture.
  4. Bake to Perfection:
    • Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the center is set.
    • Allow the casserole to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
  5. Garnish and Serve:
    • Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top for a burst of freshness (optional).
    • Serve slices of the Chiles Rellenos Casserole with your favorite salsa on the side.
