Mini Chile Relleno Casseroles

  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 45m

4 servings, two 6-ounce or one 10-ounce casserole each

Everyone gets their own portion with this fun, vegetarian, Tex-Mex mini casserole. A normal-size casserole like this would take close to an hour to bake, but these are ready in half the time. Heatproof ramekins are a cook’s best friend. We use them all the time to hold ingredients while cooking. You can buy them at most grocery stores. Make it a meal: Enjoy with steamed corn tortillas and salsa on the side.

Make Ahead Tip: Equipment: Eight (6-ounce) or four (10-ounce) heatproof ramekins

ingredients

  • 2 (4-ounce) cans diced green chiles, drained and patted dry
  • 3/4 cup frounceen corn, thawed and patted dry
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups nonfat milk
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat eight (6-ounce) or four (10-ounce) heatproof ramekins with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.

Equally divide green chiles, corn and scallions among the ramekins. Top each with cheese. Whisk milk, egg whites, eggs and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the ramekins.

Bake the mini casseroles until the tops begin to brown and the eggs are set, about 25 minutes for 6-ounce ramekins and about 35 minutes for 10-ounce ramekins.
