This recipe calls for 12 ounces of canned whole green chiles. I only found the chiles in 7 oz. cans, so I used two (14 oz. total). It wasn't enough. Next time I will use at least four cans. These were easy and very tasty. I think plain monterey jack cheese would work fine.

I used fresh chiles (not canned) but recipe still worked great. I would leave in the oven longer to get the fresh chiles softer. I also added an extra can of chopped green chiles to the sauce and it was very good that way.


I would consider these more of a cheese enchilada than a chiles rellenos. They are however good. I used the 10 minutes enchilada sauce recipe from this sit that I added low fat sour cream too. I also used 50% low fat pepper jack to cut back on some of the calories and low fat tortillas. You never would have known it was a lot fat dish. Very easy to make and very tasty.
