I made this exactly by the recipe and it was a hit! Everyone wants the recipe. So good!

you list green chilies in ingredients then green onions in the directions. I am assuming you mean green chilies for all?

Looks like they mixed up the ingredients. It calls for Ortega diced green onions in the ingredients. It calls for chilies AND green onions in directions. Looks like it combined the two ingredients in the list. Ortega makes canned chilies, not green onions.

Forgot to add that you probably need 2 cans chilies and about 3/4 c. chopped green onions. 1/2 c. onions in batter and about 1/4 c. on top.
