Received this from a dear friend who made it often for the office parties because we begged for it.

Fluffy and creamy, these green chile cheese bars are perfect any time of the day. With the texture of a breakfast casserole, the flavor reminds us of a spicy cornbread. Enjoy them for brunch, a snack, or even an appetizer.
