Cinco de Mayo meets Celtic

Cinco de Mayo is coming up quickly.  We aren't exactly Mexican, but my youngest son is half so I am mixing this up a bit... An old family recipe with an Irish Twist.  Try this great dish with a Guinness or Harp beer to complete the Celtic Sensation.

Chiles Relleno Casserole (a Swedish family reunion tradition)

1-cup milk
3 4 ounce cans whole green chilies
2 eggs
1/2 pound Monterey jack cheese grated
1/2 pound shark cheddar cheese grated
1/3 cup flour
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

Beat milk, eggs & flour until smooth.  Rinse chilies & drain on paper towels.  Mix cheese, reserve 1/2 cup for the top.  Make alternative layers of cheese, chilies, & egg mixture in deep casserole.  Pour tomato sauce & remaining cheese on top.  Bake at 375 degree for 1 hour.
