Hatch Green Chile Pie


     Not wanting to waste even one of the Hatch green chilies I had roasted, this Hatch Green Chile Pie , another good recipe from Central Market, was just the right amount to bake in my 8 inch dutch oven.  Line your oven with the opened, roasted chilies, sprinkle with cheese, pour over the eggs and bake.  With 8 coals around the base of my oven and 14 on the lid, it was puffed and golden in 20 minutes.  Let it rest for 10 minutes before serving and top with a smidgen of sour cream, the coolness helps to balance out the heat of the peppers.
