    Excellent recipe. I had fresh hot chilis so used thosed and monterey jack instead of the canned and the pepper jack. It\'s easy to make and the ingredients are easy to find-even in a small community. My family loved this so much that today will be the second time in 10 days that I\'m making this recipe-it is now on our regular menu plan.

    This recipe is wonderful! I made the recipe as you directed using some of my frozen Hatch chiles. The breading worked well with this dish, frying up to a golden brown. Easy to make and easy to eat. Thanks for sharing your recipe. It will definately be used again.

    These came out wonderful! I used dried bread crumbs as I found I was out of bread when I started but it did not hinder the outcome whatsoever! These were easy, quick and very good. Everyone loved them, and I even used store bought salsa! I will be looking for a salsa recipe here to add to this next time.....and there WILL be a next time! Thanks. :)
