I love green chiles and this hits the spot! I just toss together a tomato and cucumber salad with this and I have dinner!

I loved this pie! I made it as directed, except I didn't have any ground cumin; only cumin seed. I crushed that as best I could and used about a half teaspoon of it (I find cumin to be overpowering in large amounts). This was wonderful. My whole family loved it, and what left-overs there were were soon gone. I did not prebake the crust but didn't have any problem with a soggy crust. I think all of the cheese in the recipe guards against that! Again, this one's a winner1
