Green Chile Cheese Squares

I have never been a blog follower or even much of a blog reader until I began writing one myself.  Since starting my own blog and becoming a member of Foodblogs and Foodbuzz, I am now receiving daily emails with the latest food blog posts and updates.  I love getting these emails.  I love discovering new food blogs to peruse and new recipes to try.  I have even begun to “follow” some of them.  One of the blogs that I have particularly enjoyed is Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice written by Reeni.  I am sending these Green Chile Cheese Squares her way for her Side Dish Showdown

Green Chile Cheese Squares

6 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper sauce (optional)
3 (4-ounce) cans diced green chiles, with juice
1 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack
1 1/2 cups grated sharp Cheddar

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Butter a 9 by 13-inch baking dish.
In a bowl, add the eggs, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper sauce (if using). Mix together well.

Add the chiles and both cheeses to a large bowl.

Pour the liquid ingredients into the cheese mixture and stir well.

Pat the mixture down into the prepared baking dish.

Bake until the center is firm, about 45 minutes.

Allow to cool, then cut into small squares

and serve.

    I saw Paula Deen making these a few weeks ago and I put them on my list to make. They have my favorite green chiles in them! I bet they were delicious. Did you all love them? Thanks for sending them to the Showdown! I will add your link.
