Fabulous! I used the mozzarella cheese that has the chiles in it (Tillamook)and tossed in a couple tablespoons of cilantro I had on hand. Topped it with salsa and fresh tomatoes. I also added another egg, just because I wanted to stretch it a little more (it's an awful lot of cheese and I didn't want it to be too heavy). It was great! Thanks for posting this!
I couldn't find the whole chilies so I used the chopped chilies. I think the whole chilies would have given it a different flavor so I can't honestly comment on this recipe. As I made it I wouldn't make it again. My family found it very mild and boring. Sorry
My husband loves authentic mexican meals he is from Mexico. He liked this very much. I did add in layers a layer of ground meat sauteed with jalepenos, tomotoes,and spices. added a little tomotoe sauce on top. And some Queso Fresco along with the Cheddar cheese. Turned out great.Will keep this one.
