Chile Rellenos Souffle
Chiles Rellenos Egg Souffle
A lower calorie version of fried Chile Rellenos.
* cheese sticks make it easy to stuff peppers but I am partial to shredded cheese.
* chiles can be mild to hot depending on your taste.
4-8 oz peeled whole green chiles, drained
4+ oz of cheese of choice (we like Mont/Jack)
2 oz diced pimentos
4 eggs separated
1.5 cups milk
1/2 cup GF flour of choice
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
Salsa to garnish
Heat oven to 350 degrees
spray a 2 quart dish with cooking spray or use individual serving dishes
stuff chiles with cheese of choice and layer in your pan
sprinkle pimentos over your chiles
in a large bowl mix egg yolks, spices, milk and flour
in a medium bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form
gently fold in egg whites with your egg yolk mixture until no white shows.
spoon mixture evenly over your chiles
bake for 30-40 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean
