Chile Rellenos Pie

Chile Rellenos Pie


"Chile Rellenos without all the mess, but all the flavor. Good for company! Excellent for a buffet table! Variations include adding small chopped cooked shrimp or chopped cooked crab to the filling for an excellent brunch dish. Monterey jack cheese may be used instead of Mexican-style cheese."
