You'll be doing the Mexican hat dance over this one!
1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 (7oz.) can of diced green chilies
1 c. cottage cheese
1/4 c. onion, chopped
1 tbsp. butter
1 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Beat eggs lightly in large bowl. Stir in flour and baking powder. Add the 1/4 c. of melted butter, chilies, and cottage cheese. Saute onion in the 1 tbsp. of butter; add mixture, along with cheese. Combine just until blended. Pour mixture into a greased 9x9 inch baking dish or pie plate and bake at 400 F. for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F. and continue baking about 30 minutes. Cut into small squares or wedges and serve hot. Makes 6 servings.
This is a fun recipe I learned from a partner at Gregory's law firm in San Diego.
