Chili Cheese Puff Recipe

I found this recipe on a trip to Southern California. Since then, this versatile dish has become one of my family's favorites. I serve it as a special breakfast, for brunch or even Sunday night supper. Sausage or ham goes well with this snappy dish...and don't forget some corn muffins!

"This recipe is a keeper, I have made it for evening gatherings as well as for morning gatherings.

i have also increased eggs to six from four when I thought I needed larger squares. Easy and great recipe."

"Great dish. Make it easier by putting butter and green chilies in the baking dish to melt while the oven is preheating. You can eliminate the need to grease your pan and melt butter separately."
