    Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole uses two pounds of cheese, yes TWO! It is super cheesy, but bakes nicely into the egg to add flavor and texture rather than being stringy or overindulgent.

    I try to make Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole only when we have guests in town due to the copious amounts of cheese. This is one of the gripes. They claim it has too much cheese.

    Is there really such a thing? And if you actually make the recipe, you’ll see that although it is one heck of cheesy recipe, you hardly notice when you are eating it.

    This dish is perfect for feeding large groups. The chile is mild enough to not be spicy and it also vegetarian-friendly. (NOT vegan, many vegetarians are lacto-ovo).

    And if you are a carnivore, you can easily have some meat on the side.  Candied Bacon and Homemade Breakfast Sausage are good bets.

    You can even add cooked, crumbled breakfast sausage or bacon right into your Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole! Shredded chicken also works nicely.

    Homemade Breakfast Sausage is easier than you think using my proprietary blend of sausage seasoning and then forming them into sausage patties or sausage balls.

    We are very aware that this delicious casserole recipe is NOT a real chile relleno. And that chile rellenos are battered and fried. We get it.

    This is a deconstructed chili relleno. The original recipe appeared in a Junior League cookbook in Denver, Colorado and claimed to be from an authentic Mexican family. Past that, I can’t authenticate it.

    So before you throw stones, I didn’t name it. All I know is that this casserole is delicious!

    And the last bashing it gets is if it is a chile relleno or chili relleno. Geez, the “i” or the “e”. Well, my friend who is an editor claims that the chile pepper is indeed with an “e” and the soup is with an “i”.

    Call it a “Chili” Relleno Breakfast Casserole if you’d like. It still tastes the same!

    The original recipe for Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole calls for whole green chiles, however, these seem to be more and more difficult to find.

    You can substitute those for three 4.5-ounce cans of chopped green chiles. Be sure to drain well and dry on a paper towel to reduce moisture.

    I use a mild chile, but you can, of course, also pick a hot variety.

    Instead of using “fingers of cheese” to stuff the chiles, chop the cheese into 2-inch cubes.  If I am feeding more than 12, I will add a few more eggs. No additional measurement changes are necessary.
