Made the original recipe with 4 oz of fresh green chile peppers, filled one (9 in) pie crust and 3/4 of another pie crust. Delicious as is, at about level 2-3 heat. My husband and I like it hotter, so the next try we tried 5 oz of jalapeno peppers, and 5 oz frozen spinach (liquid squeezed out). We also went half and half on bacon and ham. Even better, with more texture and deep green color from the spinach. The third try, we did not have bacon, but used packaged pre-cut cubed ham, put 6 oz of jalapeno peppers and a full bag (10oz) of the frozen spinach, without changes to the rest of the ingredients, it totally filled 2 (9 inch deep dish) pie shells perfectly without overflowing. Delicious! My husband thinks the bacon flavor is better than ham though I think they are interchangeable, as the ham lets the cheesy/spicy taste shine.
