Chile Relleno Casserole & Sour Cream Rice


I hope you guys have been enjoying my guest bloggers. I know I have! It's been so nice to just spend time with my new little guy and our family. It is such an adjustment having a newborn again. Isaac does really well at night which is such a great thing for me. He only gets up twice to eat at night and the rest of the time he is so good. But lately he wants to be held. Alot. Which I am fine with. Except it makes it hard to do anything else like shower or eat. Lance was home for 2 1/2 weeks and had to leave this past Sunday back to Wyoming. It was so nice and I am sure missing him and his help. 

I have another giveaway with Gooseberry Patch. I will have many more the rest of the year, so keep your eyes open for those. 
This cookbook is Weeknight Dinners.






It has over 250 recipes with daily themes. There is Meatless Monday, Tuesday Tex-Mex Night, Wednesday Italian Night, Comfort Food Thursday, and Just for Fun Friday.
I chose to make Chile Relleno Casserole and Sour Cream Rice.


Chile Relleno Casserole
Ingredients
16 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
16 oz. shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 (8 oz) cans whole green chiles (You may need more. I halved this recipe and still used 2 cans)
4 eggs, separated
1 Tbsp. flour
2/3 C. evaporated milk
salt and pepper to taste

How You Do It
Sprinkle both cheeses into a lightly greased 9x13 casserole pan. Arrange chiles over cheese; set aside. Beat egg yolks in a bowl; gradually beat in flour and milk. In another bowl, beat egg whites until fluffy; stir into yolk mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle egg mixture over chiles. Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 50 minutes or until eggs are set. Let stand several minutes before serving. Makes 8 servings.

Mother's Sour Cream Rice
Ingredients
2 to 2 1/2 C. cooked rice
4 oz. can diced green chiles
8 oz. shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
16 oz. sour cream

How You Do It
Combine all ingredients in a bowl; stir well. Spoon mixture into a buttered 2 qt. casserole dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Serves 6 to 8.

  6. My favorite weeknight meal is my taco meal...it's basically like a taco meat on a salad that you serve with chips. We love it and I get asked to make it all the time by the family.

  8. My 2 grandsons like my hot dogs and beans. I slice uncured hot dogs into rounds and saute a little to brown them. Then I add a can of baked beans, some ketchup, mustard, molasses and allspice. Let simmer a few minutes. They love it.
