2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
3/4 cup milk
1- 8 ounce can tomato sauce
In a skillet brown ground beef. Add green pepper and cook until pepper is tender.
Add green chilies, salt, and spices to meat mixture and set aside.
In a bowl combine eggs and milk.
In a 9 x13 pan layer 1/2 of meat and about 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup monterey jack cheese.
Add another layer of meat and another layer of cheese. Leave remaining cheees to use on top after baking.
Pour egg milk mixture over the top of the cheese.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and spread tomato sauce over top. Then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 7 more minutes.
Remove from oven and let sit about 10 minutes before serving.
**I know the chopped chilis come in different degrees of "hot"....I might try one can of hot and one can of mild next time.....
