Author Notes

When the hubs and I were in the ramen and spaghetti-O years of our marriage I created a recipe book for him that included the compiled favorites of his family, my family, and all of his friends. Almost everyone got to select which recipes they would be contributing. All except my mother, who had no say in the matter whatsoever. I informed her that Corn, Cheese and Green Chili Pie would be her culinary two cents - no if’s, and’s or but’s. This dish is the brazen and hearty Texas cousin of the refined French quiche and the well-mannered English corn pudding. Made from eggs and corn and then packed full of cheese and hatch green chilies It is as endlessly adaptable and versatile as it is delicious.

Plate it up on fine china for a ladies brunch with small cups of tea or lay a hunk of it on a plastic plate as a side for football, bbq, and beer. It is as happy to serve as a main dish or a side and I have an inkling (though I have yet to try this out) that it could quickly be converted for the appetizer table with the use of a mini-muffin tin. —Sarah|PickledCapers

Sarah, as someone born in TX that grew up in NM... I say with love this is not a TX cousin of a French dish, it’s New Mexican! Green chiles ONLY grow in NM :)!
