Chile Relleno Bake

"Another one of my hubby's inventions.  Muy Delicioso!"

Fresh out of the oven!
2 cans (4 ounces each) of whole green chilies, peppers opened up and seeds removed
4 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded pepper-jack cheese or your favorite cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Whisk together eggs, milk, chili powder, salt and pepper. 

In an 8x8 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, place half of the green chilies on the bottom of the pan. Top with half of the cheese.  Layer on other half of green chilies and cheese.  Pour egg mixture over the top.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the center of the casserole is set and the edges are golden brown.  Serve casserole topped with salsa if desired.

TIP:  The casserole is set when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
