Yum, sounds good. I copied it. Not sure about those chiles tho. How hot is this dish?

green chilies are not the hottest out there, so it's warm. You could add mild salsa to give it some kick without being too hot.

I'll have to pass on this one. I don't like creamed soups.

Thanks, this sounds good. I never liked creamed soups either until I made my taco casserole which called for cream of mushroom and cream of chicken. You'd never know they were in there. I'm not a fan of sour cream, but hubby loves it. I'm sure the other ingredients blend and make it yummy. Printed this one out to try.

I've made this same recipe without tomatoes or bell pepper and using Ortega chopped green chllis. They are mild. and this is sooooooo yummy. Over here in Budapest we can't get cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom (there are no canned soups in Europe (UK has some). Did you know that? I was raised in Minnesota where everyone brought a "Hot Dish" and there was always one or both of those soups in the dish! Now that, I miss! :-)
