I halved the recipe, everything except I still added the full 7 ounce can of green chile peppers. We like our food spicy, so noting other comments I added red chili pepper flakes, cayenne and p...

I have made this several times for guests and for pot luck. Serve with salsa & sousr cream. Everyone loves it and I am frequently asked for the recipe. I have changed the cheese to mozzerella...
