Recipe for Chile Relleno Bake


Cinco de Mayo (5th of May), is the Mexican holiday that commemorates the Battle of Pueblo which was won on the May 5, 1862. It is a popular holiday in Mexico, of course, but has, over the years, become popular in other countries, and especially the United States. Cinco de Mayo is a day to serve fabulous Mexican food, but since it isnít a bank holiday (in countries other than Mexico), and most donít get to take the day off from work, itís a good idea to have ready a recipe for a Mexican dish that is quick and easy. Cinco De Mayo Chile Relleno Bake is a layer of green chiles and cheese, with a puffy topping that can be assembled in about 10 minutes. While itís baking, the delicious sauce takes only about 15 minutes to make; it can be made a day or two ahead and reheated to spoon over the squares of the casserole.
ĒĒ
In restaurants, chile rellenos are often battered and deep-fried. To make them at home, it would be a time-consuming proposition, not to mention messy. This casserole is lower in fat, doesnít make the house smell like deep-frying, and requires a minimum amount of dishes that can be quickly loaded in the dishwasher.

Complete this festive meal with warm flour tortillas and a tossed salad with Salsa Vinaigrette. It also makes a great brunch dish anytime.
