These Chili Relleno Bars are delicious as an appetizer or a snack when served with a cup of tea or coffee. If serving as a snack grapes or sliced pears make a nice side.
4 oz. green chilies
1/2 lb. cheddar cheese, grated
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
Salt and pepper to taste (use fresh ground pepper if possible)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain green chilies, remove seeds. Mix egg, salt, pepper, flour, milk and beat well. Grease a small pan (8 X 8 or 9 x 10 for thinner bars). Press chilies in pan and pour mixture over the chilies. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until nicely brown and done. Cut into small bars. Serve warm or room temperature.
Makes 30 to 40 pieces, depending upon size of bar.
