This delicious Green Chili Pie is quite possibly the easiest dish you will ever make! Not only is it easy, but it only has 3 ingredients! That’s right, this isn’t a typo, there are only 3 ingredients! And, if this isn’t enough to pique your interest, there are really only 3 steps to make it!
This recipe came to me by way of one of my daughter’s co-workers, Susan from Pensacola. Susan is originally from Panama City and this recipe was adapted from the Junior Service League of Panama City’s Cookbook, Bay Leaves. Susan first tasted this yummy dish at a bridal shower and as they say, the rest is history.
Green Chili Pie would be perfect served as an appetizer at a brunch, bridal or baby shower, book club meeting, or you could serve it as a snack for your kids, or for lunch or breakfast. Really there is no limit to how you could serve it. I ate it for lunch today, and what a tasty lunch it was!
