Chilies are a "must" where I live. I find they almost always improve a recipe that uses cheese. Sometimes I make this into a main dish by adding shredded cooked chicken after the chili layer. It really tastes good! —Irene Martin, Portales, New Mexico

"I made it as directed the first time and wasn't very impressed with the flavor. The second time I roasted and peeled 3 pablano peppers in place of the canned green chilies. It was much tastier! I can't wait to try with chicken also."
