John Wayne's Cheese Casserole


  • 8 ozs. Diced green chiles (2 cans)
  • 1 lb. Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 1 lb. Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 Eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup Canned evaporated milk
  • 1 Tbsp. Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. Pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • Green chiles (optional garnish)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In large bowl, combine green chiles and cheeses.

Turn into well-buttered shallow 12- by 9-inch 2-quart casserole.

Beat egg whites just until stiff peaks form.

Combine yolks, milk, flour, salt and pepper, mixing until well-blended.

Using rubber spatula, gently fold beaten whites into yolk mixture.

Pour egg mixture over cheese mixture in casserole, using a fork to "ooze" it through cheese.

Bake 30 minutes; remove from oven and arrange sliced tomatoes overlapping around outer edges.

Bake 30 minutes longer, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Garnish with chopped green chiles, if desired.

Serve with chips, salsa and refried beans.


Makes 6 servings.
