Jalapeno Squares

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by yooper

Got this in my email this morning, so I haven't made it yet. It looks like a winner! It sounds spicy-I imagine you could cut down on the heat and do half jalapenos and half canned green chilies. I'm guesstimating on the amount of servings, since the recipe didn't specify.

This was delicious! I was out of tomatoes so left that out, and omitted the sour cream and avocadoes, although I think those would have been a scrumptious addition (I needed to keep the fat content down). I wasn't sure how hot this would be, so I removed most, but not all, of the seed membrane from the jalapenos (where most of the heat is). That resulted in a moderately spicy dish that even the non-spice lovers enjoyed. The egg, milk and cheese mixture cooked up firm but moist, with a lovely brown crust. One of these days I'll make this with whole jalapenos for the heat-lovers in the house!
