One of my hubby’s favorite dishes is the chiles relleno. Being so busy I don’t have as much time as I used to so this short cut casserole is right up my ally. It was super easy to toss together and tasted pretty good once baked. Not too bad for a quick casserole and it freezes really well if you make it ahead of time.
