Lazy Chiles Rellenos / Ree Drummond

I love this concept for making Chiles Rellenos. Traditionally they are battered and deep fried. This easy recipe sort of makes them healthier by eliminating frying.
I'm definitely a fan of the recipe and will make it often. I think it would be a great dish to take to a Pot Luck, Family Gathering or a Church Supper.
I decided to simply re post Ree Drummond's original recipe with out any changes. This one is a keeper in my recipe file.
She uses canned Chiles and I believe I will too. It was one of the appealing parts of the recipe. Recommended are Ortega Fire Roasted Whole Green Chiles or Hatch Fire Roasted Whole Green Chiles. I would buy a few cans to keep in the pantry.
You could change the type of cheese, Pepper Jack, Emmenthal, Swiss, Queso Quesadilla or even Cheddar will all work. I prefer a white cheese for this recipe.
After making this recipe, I will probably use more Chiles the next time. I'll cover the entire bottom of the pan with Chiles and the same amount for the second layer.
