I found this recipe in a magazine. John Wayne was my Daddy's favorite cowboy, so this quickly became one of his favorite dishes for me to make for him. I like to serve it when I make a pot of pinto beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread. Add some slices of onion, some chow chow and you have a good old "country dinner"! Hint: I add a chopped fresh jalapeno and /or green onion to make it spicy.
- 1 (10 ounce) can green chilies (whole)
- 10 ounces longhorn cheese (grated) or 10 ounces sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 medium tomatoes (sliced thin)
- Lightly grease the bottom of a 8x8 baking dish.
- Heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Spilt and seed green chilies and arrange chiles over the bottom of the baking dish.
- Sprinkle cheese over the chilies.
- Beat eggs, salt and milk together.
- Pour over the top of the cheese.
- Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until bubbly and set.
- Take out of oven and arrange tomato slices in a single layer on top.
- Return to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Cut into squares and serve warm.
This was really yummy. Like breakfast for dinner. I took your suggestion and added the green onions. I also used only about a third of the cheese and salt (this still looked like a ton of cheese to us!). Three people ate this for a meal with sides.
This was such a simple and delicious dish! I omitted the salt and used pepper instead. I served it with two different southwestern style salads (a bean salad and a corn salad) and also shredded some chicken cooked with taco seasoning on the side. It was such a great dinner. I am looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch. Thanks for sharing!
We sure enjoyed this dish. I used fresh roasted green chilies(I bought a bag from a guy that roasts Hatch chilies on the corner this time of year). After I sprinkled on the cheese, I did add two chopped green onions. This is a keeper! Thanks.
