Serves: 4
Total Calories: 228


4 whole mild green chilies
1 cup grated Jack or longhorn cheese
4 eggs
1 cup scalded half and half or evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt


Line a buttered 8- or 9-inch pie pan with chiles (fresh, canned or frozen). Sprinkle with the cheese. Beat eggs and combine with half-and-half and garlic salt. Pour over cheese. Bake at 325° for about 40 minutes or until the custard has set. Cut in wedges and serve.

Fun Fact: Around 1900, Wilbur Scoville invented a test to rate the heat level of chiles. The habanero is the hottest chile pepper known to date with a SHU (Scoville Heat Unit) rating of about 250,000. The popular jalapeño is mild in comparison, with a rating of only 9,000 SHU.
