Chili Relleno Bake

I had gotten several banana peppers out of my garden today so I looked for a way to use them and I came up with this recipe. I hope you like it too. I used fresh eggs from my son’s hens that were free range and free of being fed any GMO grain/corn. I also used fresh meat from a local farm that does not feed GMO grain to their animals. I substituted almond milk for the milk and trust me that you will not taste the difference. This recipe is very light and healthy.

I have added it to Map My Fitness for those tracking their calorie and carb intake there.
