If you're craving a chile relleno fix, give this light south-of-the-border layered soufflé a try. I looked at several recipes then came up with my own combination and it fits my need for a guilt-free alternative. To save time use canned whole green chiles, or char your fresh garden ones if desired. One batch makes 4 generous-size servings for a hearty breakfast, or figure 6 servings if used for a brunch with tortillas, fruit and beverage. Typical soufflés will fall slightly after baking, but are really sturdy and I bake extra on purpose for leftovers. I love to watch a plain egg turn into a spectacular golden sponge like this!
