Sherri's Jalapeno Cheese Squares

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Mrs.Jack

A really simple and tasty appetizer or brunch item. I use jalapenos but you can also use the canned green chilies which aren't as spicy-hot. Also, changes/additions include adding salsa, chorizo or spicy breakfast sausage, or use your favorite cheese like monterey jack. I like these served warm (not hot) from the oven. Enjoy!

So simple to put together and very tasty! I used 2 4 oz. cans of diced jalapenos (drained well), 1 1/2 cups Mexican Style shredded cheese, 3/4 lb chorizo and a 16 oz. carton of Eggbeaters. I had to let it bake longer since I still used an 8x8 pan but the end result was great. I will be making this again, using real eggs, because it's a fast and easy breakfast! Thanks for sharing, Mrs.Jack! **Made for Fall PAC 2008**
