  • Shortcut: Bake this cheesy dish in a CORNINGWARE(R) etch(TM) Pie Plate and it'll look even more delicious. The stoneware dish is practical too, because the high-gloss interior creates a nonstick surface for super-easy cleanup.
  • Special Extra: Sprinkle with 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro just before serving.
  • Serving Suggestion: Serve with a crisp mixed green salad to round out the meal.

As in all New Mexican dishes, this needed green chili. Throw a can in to feel like you've really traveled to the southwest. Another substitution that's worth considering is using crushed tortilla chips instead of tortillas if you don't have any on hand.


This is a FANTASTIC recipe! I have made it many times and always get lots of compliments. I have found that the santa fe cooking creme is difficult to find in my area so I often will buy the plain cooking creme and add my own spices of cumin, chili powder, red pepper flake, garlic powder, etc. But it's an easy, delicious recipe!


This is a great recipe! The flavor was fantastic. I changed only one thing and that was to use a can of Rotel (Mexican Lime and Cilantro) in place of the diced tomatoes.
