This Easy Keto Chile Rellenos Casserole is the perfect recipe whether you’re Keto or not. If you need a simple pantry meal, something frugal, or a tasty low carb dish that fits your Keto life, you’ll love it. It’s a lot like a crustless quiche and is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I’ve been making this longer than I ever knew what Keto was and have loved it from the beginning.
There are days that I just don’t have much energy to cook, or I didn’t plan ahead very well and there’s not much in the fridge or pantry to make a meal out of. At these times, I need something that can be put together in just a couple of minutes instead of standing at the stove for 30 minutes.
Most of us keep these simple ingredients … eggs, cheese, and sour cream in the fridge all the time. You could easily keep some green chiles in the pantry so you will always have something to make on busy days.
Once you try this, you’ll see that it will become one of your favorites. It’s an egg casserole that is so versatile. I typically make this for dinner and we always have leftovers, which absolutely thrills me. Those leftovers work great for breakfasts with a side of bacon or for lunch with some salad.
I even make this as part of our weekly meal prep to have breakfasts and lunches stacked in the fridge. My husband will take them to work, or I will happily eat them all myself.
Eggs are a great way to stretch your budget when you’re trying to be frugal. If you need another amazing Keto egg dish, try the Mexican Poached Eggs (use low carb tortillas).

Easy Keto Chile Rellenos Casserole
I first tried this healthy chile rellenos recipe years ago when I went to a Demarle at Home party. It was so delicious that I just jotted down the recipe on a scrap of paper. It would be so easy to modify this basic recipe by adding broccoli and ham, or fresh tomatoes and mushrooms. You can even change up the cheese to hot pepper jack or swiss. Really, the sky’s the limit. What a great opportunity to use up some leftovers, instead of running to the store for special ingredients.
Start by pulling all your ingredients together. You’ll need Eggs, Sour Cream, Diced Green Chiles, Cheese, Salt, Pepper, and Tabasco (if you like).
Mix everything in a bowl, starting with just the Eggs, Sour Cream, Green Chiles and Tabasco.
After that’s thoroughly mixed, add in the cheese, pour it into your baking pan and put it in the oven.
When it’s done, the center should be set and the top should be a bit browned.
Finally, after letting it sit a few minutes you get to slice it up, and serve it. And I’ll tell you my favorite part … leftovers! I love to have this for breakfast the next day.

Here’s a Bonus Egg Recipe that you’ll love me for.
The Poached Egg Bonus
I have no idea where I learned this, but it has revolutionized my breakfasts. I can’t even call it a recipe. It’s really just a technique – a super tricky, stupendous, magical-kind of technique, if you ask me.
- Take a bowl (I just use a cereal bowl), pour 1 cup of cold water in it.
- Crack 2 eggs into the water.
- Place in microwave for 1 min. 45 sec.
That’s it! Done! 2 luscious poached eggs to put on your toast. You may need to play around with the time a little to get what’s just right in your microwave. After finding that 1:45 is the sweet spot for mine I don’t have to monkey with it at all.
If you’re eating low carb or Keto, put them on leftovers, like sauteed veggies, sliced turkey breast, bacon, ham, or spinach. If not, then toast is the way to go. I even found this Low Carb Bread on Amazon that would be great to try.
