Chilies Rellenos Bake $3.21

So I have no idea when I stumbled upon this recipe, but I know I've made it more than a time or two.  There are two versions...both of which I've included herein.  It's pretty much straight outta Betty Crocker, so it's hardly rocket science for Barbara or I, but never the less, we present... Chili Rellenos Bake

Chilies Rellenos Bake
4 large Eggs .32
1/2 cup sour cream .25
1/8 tsp salt
1 drop red pepper sauce .05
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz).56
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz).56
1 can chopped green chilies, undrained.49

Heat oven to 350 - spray a 8 X 8 pan
Beat eggs, sour cream, salt, pepper sauce in large bowl with wire whisk.  Stir in cheeses and chillies, Pour into prepared baking dish
Bake uncovered about 40 minutes or util golden brown and set in center

Meanwhile, prepare
1 cup salsa .50
2 tbsp chopped cilantro.15
1/2 cup black beans (drained/rinsed).18
1/2 cup corn..15

When chilies rellenos bake is done, top with the salsa and serve.

A "Lighter Chilies Rellenos Bake" is presented in the cookbook...
it allows for 1 cup Egg Beaters and 1 cup of cooked rice instead of the cup of Monterey Jack cheese.  It also recommends using low fat versions of sour cream and cheddar cheese.
