easy green chile cheese puff


The other day when I found cottage cheese on sale I could not pass it up. It was dated that day and needed to be used.  I found a recipe that is a keeper


super easy green chile cheese puff

5 eggs beaten
2 cups cottage cheese (16 oz container)
1 cup jack cheese
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1  can diced green chile (4 oz)

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 9x9 square baking pan. 
bake at 350 for about 40 minutes until set and no longer wet in the middle  Serves 6

I did make one change. The original recipe called for 1 cup cottage cheese and 2 cups jack cheese, but I switched the two. I wanted to use the entire container of cottage cheese and only had about a cup of jack cheese on hand.  The results were yummy.

We have made this recipe several times since. The entire family really enjoys it.


  1. This does sound good! Good call on switching the cottage cheese and cheese amounts. I'll need to try this!

  2. i keep trying to talk myself into cottage cheese. not actually into it. but into eating it. this might push me over the edge.
