Hatch Chile Clafoutis with Hatch Aioli

Hatch Chile Clafoutis with Hatch Aioli:

This is an original recipe that I created for a recipe contest.

The filling is delicious.
 The first layer of Batter creates a bottom Crepe and the Cheese melts into
the Batter on the Top Layer.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a 10" fluted Quiche Pan or Pie Plate by spraying it with a nonstick vegetable spray.

This is the bottom crust that has the consistency of a Crepe.
It turned out perfectly.

This is the filling including the Mushrooms.
