Nostalgic Casserole

Mom's high school friend gave her this recipe many years ago.  It is so good and so easy.  Even though it is meatless - you hardly notice. After tasting this casserole after several years, I remember Mom making this many Fridays in Lent.   Tomorrow, as it is Good Friday, is no exception to the abstinence from meat rule.  A perfect wrap up for Lent.

Puffy Chile Relleno Casserole

2-3 cans chilies
4 corn tortillas, cut into strips
1lb shredded cheese
8-12 eggs
1/2 cup milk
salt/pepper/cumin/garlic powder/onion powder (I used about 1 T taco seasoning)

Layer tortillas, chilies, tortillas, chilies in a greased 9x13pan.  Then sprinkle with cheese.  In a bowl combine eggs, milk and spices.  Pour egg mixture over tortilla/chili/cheese layers.  Bake at 350 for about 40minutes.  Let rest 10minutes before cutting.
