Chile Cheese Squares

I’ve got a Tex-Mex treat for you–Chile Cheese Squares. These amazing treats can be eaten as a party appetizer, as a side for chili, or for breakfast! You’ll actually think you’re eating cornbread, but there is no cornmeal in this recipe. Instead it uses Bisquick, lots of cheese, pimientos, diced green chiles, hot sauce, eggs and milk. As a result, this delicious concoction is a souffle-style treat that tastes absolutely amazing.

I made this for a youth swim party at our house last month. We had a bunch of teenagers from our church over and I served cookies and appetizers. I had seen this recipe on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try. This tasty side dish was very well received as an appetizer by all that came to the party, although my husband thought Chile Cheese Squares would be really excellent served with chili or soup! I think it would also be great served for breakfast as a side with bacon, eggs and fruit.

If you’re looking for a tasty side and you enjoy Tex-Mex style food, I recommend Chile Cheese Squares – for breakfast, with soup or chili or for your next tailgating party. Everyone will enjoy this delicious comfort food and you will lick your fingers clean! 🙂

    These look like they would melt in your mouth! I love the fact that it has chilies in them (and cheese). I agree with your husband, sounds like it would be delicious with chili. Thanks for sharing, Teresa! I hope you’re having a good summer.
