Gluten-Free Chile Relleno Casserole

So it appears as though I’m addicted to individual quiche containers—not to mention gluten-free cuisine. I mean, how can you not love those precious little meals with easy cleanup. And well…gluten-free should just be called bloat-free. As I mentioned before, I don’t have a gluten allergy. I began making gluten-free meals for my mother-in-law, and the first few times, I made both a regular version for us and a gluten-free version for her, but I quickly realized that I preferred the gluten-free option, and no one appreciated this switch more than my stomach. Now, I don’t have to wait twenty-four hours for my wheat pooch to disappear. And today, I decided to combine an old love of mine—New Mexican cuisine—with my two new loves. I hope you enjoy my Gluten-Free Chile Relleno Casserole.
