"Great recipe! Very versatile so you can use whatever you have on hand to add, or not. I used diced jalapenos in place of diced chilies just because my family loves the ester "heat." Everyone enjoyed this and don't forget the onions for that extra crisp!"

"This is a great recipe for leftover Easter ham! I didn't use the green chilies or French fried onions, only because I didn't have them on hand. I did add sauteed onion and fresh mushrooms to the mix to compensate for the missing ingredients. Even with the substitutions, it was wonderful! Five stars, for sure!"
