Chicken and Chilies Bake

There is nothing that smells better than a Green Chili roasting on the fire. During the Chili harvest each year we always roast some Green Chili's and freeze or can them for the winter months. The Green Chilies that I am using in this recipe today were roasted and put in the freezer last summer during the harvest. When people ask me why are you doing all that canning and freezing in the spring and summer, I always say it is going to be so good when the snow is on the ground, and it is!

  1. Helen, this sounds great. It looks like it makes a lot of extra sauce. I wonder if it would be sufficient to cut the sauce in half? I always have to try to cut down on extras where possible without destroying the finished product, of course.

    So happy you are the featured blogger this month. I look forward to your posts.

    Have a great week.

    1. If I had read the recipe all the way to the end I would have seen why the extra sauce. Question answered. :-D

    2. Thanks Lita,
      We love the extra sauce on the side and it is great for chip and veggie dip. So glad you stopped by, it is always great to see you!
