6 eggs , beaten
¾ cup shredded monterey jack cheese (3 oz)
¾ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (3 oz)
2 (4 ½ ounce) cans chopped green chilies , drained

2 Stir in flour, cornmeal and salt (cumin and cayenne if using) until mixture forms a dough and all lumps have disappeared. Gradually stir in beaten eggs until well blended. Stir in both cheeses and the chiles.
