    I commented earlier on something else and gave you the Pizza Casserole recipe… I meant to tell you that I tried this recipe after you posted it once in your menu and it was really good!! I ended up trying 3 different Becoming Betty recipes that week.

    Looks absolutely delicious. I'm making something similar tonight for dinner, and you made my stomach growl just thinking about it! –

    I’m originally from Arizona and now live in northern Virginia.

    Anyway, I was looking for a recipe for Green Chile Burrors and found your website and your recipe. So glad I did.

    Hard to find good Mexican food in Virginia (at least the kind we’re used to in Arizona that’s more Sonoran-based) so I’m glad I found your recipe for Green Chile.

    Thanks you very much!

    I forgot to ask but how many servings would you get from this recipe as I didn’t see servings amount.

    • Jamielyn posted on July 6, 2011 at 6:41 pm (#

      Hi! It should give you about 6 servings. Enjoy!

    Yum! This looks like a perfect quick and easy weeknight meal!

    These look delicious! Can’t wait to try them. I like that you can make them with pork as I never seem to find enough pork recipes I like. 

    • Jamielyn posted on December 8, 2015 at 4:32 pm (#

      I agree! I usually use chicken or beef, but I love finding good pork recipes! Hope you enjoy these! :)
