TEXAS FUDGE...right!!!

Straws Kitchen(*o *)


A friend sent this one to me, she received from someone else...

I repete, it is not my recipe but since I had never heard of one like this, thought maybe you had not either.

My Daughter lives in Texas and I think I'll ask her if she's ever heard of it...or maybe her MIL (since she was born in TX).

P.S. Have a variation or add on to this recipe posted below by a JAP member...Vicky Searcy.
I will add it to a NOTE at the end of the recipe.

How to Make TEXAS FUDGE...right!!!


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.
    Add grated cheeses.
  3. Line a 9x13x2-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, grease or spray foil with non-stick spray.
  4. Spread the chilies over bottom of dish, and cover with the egg, milk and cheese mixture.
  5. Place pan in center of oven. Bake 40 minutes.
  6. When baked remove from over to a wire rack to cool slightly before cutting into bite-sized squares.
  7. Serve hot or at room temperature.
  8. This can be made a day ahead, because it taste best at room temperature.
  9. So, place in refrig overnight.
    Next day, take out of refrig and bring to room temperature before serving.
  10. If you try it, come back and let me know how much you enjoyed it (or not).
    I will have to work up enough nerve to give this one a try...=;D
  11. NOTE: OK, Cindy, I make this all the time...the only difference is I add 2 sleeves of ritz crackers crushed, 1 med onion chopped, and jalapenos to taste...I always add what I think is fairly hot, my family likes it hot...I use pepper jack cheese instead of Monterrey, and not so much milk about half...I am telling you it is a huge hit and everyone asks me to bring it...I cut it in small squares and they just scarf it up...I call it Mexican Fudge and yes I am from Texas and we all like it hot....VICKY SEARCY
