These Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Roasted Chiles are filled with a mixture of chicken, onion, cheese, and spices and cooked in a savory custard.

I do realize that it’s the Christmas season and everyone is focused on cookies, candies, and other treats, but we still have to put dinner on the table every evening, don’t we? Well, I guess take-out is always an option, but I get really tired of it really quickly. Plus, it’s darned expensive and my budget is stretched pretty thin this time of year!

A nice family dinner, like these Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Roasted Chiles is just what we need. Luscious whole roasted chiles filled with a mixture of chicken, onion, cheese, and spices and baked in a savory custard. Yum-yum!

If you are one of those lucky people who has access to roasted Hatch chiles, please do use those in this recipe. However, if you’re like me you’ll need to purchase the little cans of whole roasted chiles at your grocery store. Just be sure of what you’re buying and get the mild, whole roasted chiles. Be careful since they’re usually on the shelf right next to the canned jalapenos! Or maybe you do want jalapenos. I’ll stick to the mild green chiles, thanks :-)
