    1 Cookin' Texan 1954's Note:

    I found this recipe in a magazine. John Wayne was my Daddy's favorite cowboy, so this quickly became one of his favorite dishes for me to make for him. I like to serve it when I make a pot of pinto beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread. Add some slices of onion, some chow chow and you have a good old "country dinner"! Hint: I add a chopped fresh jalapeno and /or green onion to make it spicy.

      This was really yummy. Like breakfast for dinner. I took your suggestion and added the green onions. I also used only about a third of the cheese and salt (this still looked like a ton of cheese to us!). Three people ate this for a meal with sides.

      Only made half a recipe but is very good. Quick and easy to make. Served it with Mexican-Style Chicken Kiev and Mexican Rice. Delicious meal.

      Made this for a quick lunch, and wow, this is ever good. Tag - a - long little doggies. Yeeahaa! Easy to throw together, and you can't go wrong. I didn't have green chili's so I diced up some roasted red peppers and used in place. On the red peppers, I put a bit of cayenne pepper and a bit of paprika to give them a little kick. Absolutely divine! Added so grape tomatoes to the top and also some fresh spinach leaves. YUM! Thank you! Made for *I Recommend* tag game February 2009.
