Baked Chilie Pie
1 (4 oz) can whole green chilies
1/2-3/4 cup grated Reduced Fat Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese (I use Sargento's RF 4-Cheese Mexican shredded cheese)
2 eggs
1/4 cup 1% milk

Beat eggs and milk together. Remove seeds from chilies and place in a greased 6-8 inch pan. Layer cheese over chilies. Pour milk mixture over all.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with salsa if desired.

I find that 1/4 pie with a little canadian bacon is sufficient for breakfast .

I wonder how it would work to put the mixture into individual muffin tins that are sprayed? Maybe I guess you'd put the chiles on the bottom then pour everything else over ... I think I'll try it. They might freezer well and be a good portable "take to work" type breakfast.

Thanks for the recipe!

that's actually what i did and they turned out great. i didn't try freezing them though so i don't know about that.

Hi everyone. This looks really good, and I would like to try it, but I could not find whole green chilies at either store I tried. Maybe I don't know what I'm looking for. I found a small can of chopped chilies in the mexican food section, but not whole. It's not peppers, is it? I saw a lot of those.

If someone could help, I would really appreciate it!!

They are not the same as the regular sweet green peppers but are smaller ones and of varying hotness. Here's a chart of the different kinds. ( I think the ones I used were the sweet pale green Italian ones but some of the other ones would work too. The jalapeno ones are great but a bit hot for my taste.

Oh, Ok. I will go back and look again, and maybe look at the fresh ones as well. Thanks Ruth!!

If you will look where you saw the chopped green chillies there will probably be a can the same size as the chopped and they are whole. I picked up the whole ones by mistake one time and that's how I noticed. They are in the ethnic or Mexican food section.:)

Thanks Lolow. I looked and looked and I finally found them. I haven't tried the recipe yet. I'll let y'all know how it turns out.
