John Wayne's Green Chilie Squares

"I found this recipe in a magazine. John Wayne was my Daddy's favorite cowboy, so this quickly became one of his favorite dishes for me to make for him. I like to serve it when I make a pot of pinto beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread. Add some slices of onion, some chow chow and you have a good old "country dinner"! Hint: I add a chopped fresh jalapeno and /or green onion to make it spicy."

    This was really yummy. Like breakfast for dinner. I took your suggestion and added the green onions. I also used only about a third of the cheese and salt (this still looked like a ton of cheese to us!). Three people ate this for a meal with sides.

    This was such a simple and delicious dish! I omitted the salt and used pepper instead. I served it with two different southwestern style salads (a bean salad and a corn salad) and also shredded some chicken cooked with taco seasoning on the side. It was such a great dinner. I am looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch. Thanks for sharing!

    We sure enjoyed this dish. I used fresh roasted green chilies(I bought a bag from a guy that roasts Hatch chilies on the corner this time of year). After I sprinkled on the cheese, I did add two chopped green onions. This is a keeper! Thanks.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I'm a true blooded Texan, third generation. I work at a college and love to spend my free time with friends and famliy. I love to give'm lots of love and good food! Paula Deen's cookbooks are one of my favorites but I also love cookbooks that are compiled from church groups and clubs that are selling them as a fundraiser, they are always filled with tried and true family favorites. I have even helped with a few of these myself. One of my passions is helping with children. I worked in a school district for many years and still volunteer helping in my daughter's 3rd grade classroom. (I'm proud to say she's the teacher, Baylor grad 2004!)I guess my biggest pet peeve is people that complain about things but don't try to be part of helping with the problem. I was taught you have no right to complain when you are not willing to help make things better for the next ones to come along.
