IS IT CHILI OR CHILE?
According to the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University, the spelling of the word ‘chile’ has a long and varied history. Chile comes from the term chilli that comes from the Aztec, Nahuatl language. According to Jean Andrews the Spanish spelling was later changed to chile by Spanish-speaking Mexicans and chili in the United States. So basically, in my opinion, they’re both ok. It just depends on the region.
HOW DO YOU MAKE CHILE RELLENO CASSEROLE?
This casserole is made with green chiles which are stuffed with cheese, covered with an egg batter, then baked to perfection. The first step is to stuff each one of your chiles with a stick of cheese. I use Monterey Jack because it’s a mild flavored cheese that melts well.
ARE CHILE RELLENOS SPICY?
This chile relleno casserole is not spicy. If you’re looking for a spicier version, you could use a spicy cheese in the filling such as habanero or pepper jack, or add some hot sauce to the egg batter.
After your chile relleno casserole comes out of the oven, it will be very puffy and browned. As the casserole cools, it will deflate a bit which is totally normal. Add a sprinkling of cilantro and serve as-is, or with some toppings.
