  • 1 cup cottage cheese

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted


Whisk the eggs in a bowl.  Add a mixture of the flour, baking powder, chili powder and salt to the eggs and whisk until blended.  Add the Pepper Jack cheese, green chiles, cottage cheese, sour cream and butter, mixing well after each addition.
