    ellie_'s Note:

    I haven't made this yet but thought it would be great when there is no time to cook but need something quick. Served with a tossed salad this would be a complete Sunday night supper or a great dish for brunch. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (November 1982)

      Not being a fan of microwaved baked goods, I prepared this entirely in the oven, baking it at 375 degrees F for 50 minutes. I came out beautifully puffed and golden brown. For dietary reasons, I used egg substitute and low fat milk, as well as using Kraft Tex Mex mixture (Monterey jack, cheddar and low fat mozzarella). The filling turned out really well. My husband, who is a picky eater, asked for seconds so I know I have a winner with this recipe.

      This was a wonderful and easy recipe to make......I added less chillies to this, and also used Gruyere with the Cheddar cheese with great results! I LOVED the additon of the cumin, it really made this a little bit different. Made for ZWT3 - I think I will add some tomatoes next time for extra flavour and colour! Lovely recipe - thanks Ellie!

      I was interested in trying this recipe because it was quick, and such recipes can be useful on so many occasions. The filling was tasty (loved the cumin in this) and it browned nicely being placed under the griller, but as I'd feared the pie crust was slightly soggy and sort of steamed. Not very tasty at all. I'm wondering if five or ten minutes in the oven after the initial cooking in the microwave would crisp the crust. Next time I make this, I may simply cook it in the oven. I used a diced red pepper rather than chilies (personal taste preference).
