  • Yield: Makes 5 or 6 servings


  • 2 cans (7 oz. each) whole green chilies
  • 1/2 pound thin-sliced jack cheese
  • 1/4 pound fat-trimmed cooked roast beef, cut into 1/16- to 1/8-inch-thick slices
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shredded jack cheese
  • Purchased avocado and chili salsa


1. Count chilies and divide sliced cheese and beef into as many portions. Roll each portion of cheese around a portion of beef and stuff into a chili. Lay chilies side by side in an oiled shallow 9- by 13-inch casserole.

2. In a blender, whirl eggs, milk, flour, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to blend. Pour over chilies.

3. Bake in a 350° oven for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with shredded jack cheese and continue to bake until egg mixture no longer jiggles around chilies when casserole is gently shaken, about 2 minutes more.

4. Scoop onto plates and add salsa and salt to taste.
