I was going through my mom and grandma’s old recipe collection, and I found an easy recipe for these simple low carb chile cheese squares. And when I say simple, I do mean simple. Seriously, this may be one of the easiest homemade appetizers ever, and you only need 4 ingredients to make them!

Since the holidays are coming up, I’m trying to plan our menu, and I always like to try things out before serving them to company. Or family, for that matter! I’ve been searching for easy appetizer recipes, so when I saw these cheese squares, I knew I had to try them out!

Basically, all you need are

  • Eggs
  • Cheese
  • Green Chiles
  • Salt

And that’s all, folks! These are kind of like mini crustless quiches, with a Southwestern twist. And they’re pretty similar to the Baked Ham and Cheese Cups and Baked Sausage and Cheese Cups I like to make. The only real difference is that instead of baking these in a muffin tin, you bake it in one pan, and then you cut it into small squares before serving.

The original recipe called for using all shredded cheddar cheese, but I used a blend of cheddar and Mexican blend cheese. I just thought that those flavors would go well with the green chiles.

I was tempted to add some hot sauce for extra spice, but I’m glad I didn’t. The green chiles add enough flavor, so this is a perfect appetizer for those people who don’t like spicy food. You know who you are!

Next time, though, I think I’m going to experiment and make a spicier version of these little chile cheese squares. And then, I can keep these babies all to myself!

    I used to make these years ago but lost the recipe. I’m glad I found yours. I thought I was going to have to wing it. These are always a hit when taken to a party and so simple to fix. Being low carb and gluten free is an added bonus now with everyone dieting and/or allergic to wheat gluten. Thanks for posting!5 stars
