Chorizo Chile Relleno Casserole

This really is nothing like the original Chile Rellenos but I had no idea what else to call it.  I came across a recipe from The Pioneer Woman  the other day and after going to a local Mexican restaurant and trying there Chorizo Chile Rellenos I decided to mold the two.  Lots of flavor and an easy make ahead breakfast.
  • 1 10 oz can whole green chiles
  • 1 10oz package ground chorizo
  • 6 oz queso fresco, grated/crumbled (1/2 package)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 eggs
Directions:  Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large skillet fry chorizo until broken up and browned.  Remove from heat and lightly stuff chiles(use about 1/4-1/2 of chorizo) and place in lightly greased pie pan or 8x8 baking dish.
Top the chiles with 3/4 of the shredded cheese.
Add the eggs and milk into the skillet with remaining chorizo and mix together.
Pour mixture over the chiles and top with remaining cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes and enjoy!
