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


  • 1 can (7 ounces) whole green chiles
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • Seasoned salt to taste
  • Salsa


  1. Split chiles; rinse and remove seeds. Dry on paper towels. Arrange chilies in an 11x7-in. baking dish. Top with cheeses.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs; add milk and biscuit mix. Pour over cheese. Sprinkle with salt. Bake at 325° until golden brown, 50-55 minutes. Serve with salsa.
