Lightened up Chili Relleno dish

Not calorie free or even low calorie but lightened up a bit. I made it last night and was pretty happy with it.The chilies still had a little firmness to them too.

6 pablano chilies fired and skinned. I use a soldering torch to blacken and a clean kitchen scrubby to remoe the skin without overcooking the chilies.I leave the stem and remove the seed pod by slicing into the side.

Filling for the chilies:
2 cups Racho Fresco cheese crumbled
1 pound minus 1 cup sliced brown mushrooms crumbled to desired size.
1 big sprig fresh oregano chopped fine
salt and pepper

Stuff the chilies with above mixture and place in a casserole dish.

Top chilis with 2 15 oz cans of seasoned chopped tomatoes that have been drained of as much liquid as possible. I bet fresh toms would work just as well.

Sprinkle with mozzerella,remaining shrooms, and some crumbled cotija cheese.

Bake at 350 untill well browned

I love chiles rellenos, too. I especially love not having to have the mess of frying them! Thanks! I don't see a picture, though.

The next time I see poblanos or annaheims in the store, I'm going to try this. I've never had much luck frying them and will definitely try the addition of chopped mushrooms to the filling. It's my favorite dish at a Mexican restaurant.
