  • Place butter in a shallow 2-quart microwave-safe baking dish. Microwave on High fr about 45 seconds or until butter is melted. Break eggs into dish and beat with a wire whisk until blended. Then mix in flour, baking powder, salt, cottage cheese, 1-1/2 cups of the monterey jack cheese, and chiles until blended. Smooth to make an even layer.
  • Microwave, uncovered, on Medium-High for 5 minutes. Remove dish from oven and stir, bringing cooked edges of mixture toward center of dish and allowing uncooked portion to flow to edges. Then microwave, uncovered, on Medium-High for 5 more minutes, giving dish a half-turn after 2-1/2 minutes (if your microwave does not have a turntable). Sprinkle egg puff with remaining 1/2 cup of monterey jack cheese. Microwave,uncovered, on High for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and puff appears barely set in center. Let stand, uncovered, for 10 minutes; puff should feel firm in center when lightly touched.
  • Offer picante sauce to spoon over individual portions, if desired.
