    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This is a version of an old favorite Tex-Mex Corn and Green Chili Spoon Bread recipe, that has been lightened up. This recipe originally called for "egg substitute equivalent to 2 eggs", which further lightens the recipe; however either version works. An attractive presentation for this side dish is to spoon it into tamale wrappers, tied at one end and open at the other. This recipe was adapted from, The Ultimate Low-Fat Mexican Cookbook, by Anne Lindsay Greer.
