Easy Chili Rellenos

I got this off the back of a can of Rosarita refried beans: Prep time - 15 minutes, Cook time 30 minutes, Serves 4


  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 (7 ounce) can diced green chilis
  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 2 cups shredded pepper-jack cheese (I used less cheese & sliced ... because that's what I had:)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Spray an 8 x 8 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray
  • Beat egg whites in small bowl until stiff peaks form
  • Whisk egg yolks in a separate bowl ... fold into the whites
  • Add the flour into the eggs until combined
  • Fold in green chilis

Spread beans over bottom of prepared pan. Top with 1/2 of the egg mixture ... and 1/2 cheese, repeat.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

This was so easy and very delicious!! Enjoy!

This was really good, I made it last night... everyone liked it but i could have used less eggs and i used 2% cheddar cheese and only about 1 - 1 1/2 cups. It was still good.
