Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This delicious accompaniment is a specialty of the former food editor of the "Arizona Republic" newspaper. It may be made ahead and refrigerated: add ten minutes to the baking time. I like, sometimes, to use the 7 ounce can of green chilies. Sometimes I also substitute 4 ounces sharp white Cheddar cheese for an equal amount of the Jack.
