    Very good. I only chilled for one hour and it still was great. Will make again. Served it with Recipe #113670. Great meal.

    Yooper, my kids went absolutely crazy for this. I was looking for something a little different yet still comfort food to appeal to them. I'm with Denise. If you mix cheese into a recipe, you can get kids to eat just about anything. So the spicier flavors that might appeal to my wife and I can be enjoyed by the kids too due to the "blunting" effect of the Monterey Jack. I may even push the envelope a bit next time and mix a fresh jalapeno from our garden into the filling. A very simple recipe to prepare, but big on impression. Mmmm.

    We really enjoyed this, Mark! I really like the melted cheese combined with the green chiles. My son was crazy about this - I think this would probably be a real kid pleaser with the cheese. I didn't change a thing and served with spanish rice and cold beer with lime. Excellent!

    I just had to try this! I don't do real hot, but I love the chili flavor. So I used mild chilis and cut the amount in half. This is SO good! The melted cheese, the chicken and chilis with the picante sauce (mild) was wonderful! This is going into the keeper file. Thanks Mark!
