I enjoy the blend of green chile and cheese. In this recipe it takes your steak south of the border for an authentic Mexican Steak. No visa or passport required!

WONDERFUL!! I used to order this at a TexMex restaurant several years ago that has since gone out of business. Thanks for bringing back an old favorite into my life! I served with spanish rice and beans. This will melt in your mouth!
