A new month has just begun! We just got back from a little road trip and it was so fun to see the changing colors of the season. Where we live, we do not see a lot of changes, but I did get a chance to take in some beautiful seasonal colors this weekend. This is prime casserole season and today I am sharing a fun favorite.
Today’s Chill Relleno Casserole recipe is an easy one when you are looking for a tasty make-ahead casserole. This time of year, I love cheesy, rich casseroles and this one does not dissapoint.
I have had this recipe for years and from time to time I change it up by adding bacon or changing up the cheese, but it is always so tasty!
