I have been making this for years. I first got the original recipe from my Mother-in-law, but have adapted it to fit our taste buds. You can add more or less green chiles. I use 2 percent milk, evaporated milk or even half n half. You may also you any cheese, I prefer the mexican style cheeses or sharp cheddar. The cheese taste better if you shred it yourself.*Do not use flour tortillas, they will change the flavor and be gummy, you may leave out the tortillas and crush some sun chips on top if desired*. One can make this in advance and place in refrigerator until ready to bake.
