    This was delicious. I made half the recipe, which fit perfectly into a 6 inch pie/tart pan. I did not have pepper jack, but had some habanero quesadilla cheese from the Mexican market, which worked wonderfully well. A wonderful meal. Update: the store I was at did not have the whole peppers, but had diced medium hot peppers, so I used those. A little more heat was welcome, but what I really liked was that the diced peppers made it easier to spoon out the dish

    Habanero quesadilla cheese instead of pepper jack.

    Way too easy to be this good! I used a little extra cheese, but that's just how I am. This is a cheesy gooey treat. Thanx for posting!
