Green Chili Egg Puff Recipe

Publisher Photo
Green chilies add a touch of Southwest flavor to this fluffy egg dish. The cottage cheese offers nice texture, and people always love the gooey Montery Jack cheese melted throughout. —Laurel Leslie, Sonora, California

"Sprinkle a can of French fried onion rings on top before you bake. Delish."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2012

"I have to admit: this was pretty amazing. However, I would make the following two changes:

1) The fat content is extremely high on this puff and there are easy ways to tone it down. Buy lower milkfat cottage cheese and lower milkfat monterey cheese. This also significantly lowers the calorie count, while not effecting the protein count (which is one of the reasons I love this recipe.)
2) I didn't taste the green chilis at all and I am NOT a fan of spicy food. I used a 4.5 oz can and next time will use closer to 6 oz.
Sidenote: This puff tastes amazing with salsa on top. :)"
