I first tasted this at a church potluck and begged for the recipe. My version uses 2 cans of green chilies, which is a nice "chili rellano" flavor, but use your own heat-loving level. Ignore the comment by the person who is confused about cheese measurements and made it wrong by doubling the eggs. The recipe calls for 4 cups shredded Monterey Jack, a hard cheese which does happen to equal a pound when shredded. On the other hand, only 2 cups of cottage cheese, a soft/liquid cheese, also weighs a pound (16 oz.). Recipe lists both ingredients correctly.

Just back from a fabulous girls get away weekend where our esteemed book club leader treated us to this casserole for breakfast. It was heavenly. No improvisation at all, it was impossible to improve upon! We attacked it like hungry cats!

This turned out great. I substituted sliced jalapenos for the chilies for a little more kick. Also my bag of cheese said 16 oz is 4 cups.

Giving this one star just because there is a mis-print. The Monterey Jack cheese shows "4 cups (16 oz)". Where I come from, 4 cups is 32 oz. Didn't notice until after I dumped 4 cups of cheese in the mixture. Almost made a gooey cheese ball instead of eggs. I had to double the recipe since I'm sure they meant 2 cups. It came out ok, but only because I had 20 eggs on hand. PLEASE CORRECT

My recipe for this is called Chili Cheese Bites and I've been making this for 10 years. I use 8 tablespoons butter, melted in the dish in the oven and swirled around to coat the bottom and all sides. I then pour off remaining butter into mixed ingredients. I also mix in two (2) four oz. cans of green chili's as my husband likes it better this way.

Does this recipe need butter?

In appreciation of my employees, i made a big brunch for them. This was one of the recipes I made. There wasn't a morsel left! Everyone loved it. I had leftover jack cheese, chilies & cottage cheese, so I made the recipe again in a 1/2 sz version the next day, but to change it up I added thawed hash brown potatoes and bacon bits. OMG! Super yummy any way you make this dish. Next time I will do a diced ham version and try cooking it in a muffin tin. Love recipes that are so versatile! ?

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