Cook's Notes:

Enjoy a taste of the ol' Southwest. This is delicious and heart healthy dish that is also rich and satisfying. One ounce of green chile provides 15% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C, so this dish really packs a wallop!

The leftovers reheat well and this also makes a delicious and always well received dish for an office potluck (doubles easily for larger groups).

Use reduced-sodium canned soup and chiles to lower the salt in this dish.
