This was a great basic and simple recipe, though I did what Geema suggested and added an egg. It turned out too dry, so next I won't add an egg. Thanks for the recipe.

This dish was made with pantry staples and was very easy to put together. I substituted a can of small, deveined shrimp for the clams, and used some Parmesan instead of the cheddar cheese. For some reason the finished dish was a little soupy and I wondered if I should have added an egg. While the green chilies gave this dish a little zip, I wish I had used the whole can, since they were fairly mild. Barb, this is a great basic recipe that will come in handy when I need a good meal with things I have on hand.
