Traditional chiles rellenos may be delicious, but preparing them is no small task. First the chiles are roasted, next they’re stuffed with a cheesy beef filling, and finally they’re dipped into batter and fried until they’re golden and crisp—not to mention the step of making a spicy tomato sauce to serve with the peppers. Instead, we captured each of these elements in a casserole with a fraction of the fuss. We combined sautéed chiles, beef, and piquant Ro-tel tomatoes and finished the dish off with a baked puffed egg white and cheese topping.
