Chile Cheese Squares

12 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon adobo seasoning
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
12 ounces cheese, grated
1/2 cup green chiles, diced

Combine eggs, flour, baking powder and salt, mixing thoroughly. Stir in cottage cheese, grated cheese and chiles. Pour batter into well greased 9x12-inch baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into 2" squares and serve either warm or at room temperature. To freeze, cut and cool then package for freezer.

Makes 12 main course servings or cut in smaller pieces for an appetizer topped with a spoon of thick salsa.

Note: Use any preferred cheese or combination of cheese -- jalapeno cheese is good as is cheddar, monterey jack or colby. Swiss works well but parmesan might be too salty/strong, probably be better to combine it with another cheese.

I hesitated to try these since they call for so many eggs but I tried it last night and we loved it! DH insisted on taking some for lunch and even my picky 6yo was in favor of having it again.
