¼ c butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
½ c all-purpose flour
½ c grated Monterey jack cheese (or pepper jack, cheddar or combo)
½ can (4 oz.) green chilies, chopped (or even better, jalapeño rings)
1 egg, lightly beaten
¼ cup heavy cream
1/8 tsp. salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Dash Tabasco

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the butter and cream cheese, blend until smooth. Stir in flour. Form dough into a ball and wrap in waxed paper. Chill up to 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 350º. Divide the ball into 12 smaller balls and press into lightly greased miniature muffin pan to form shells. Sprinkle cheese and chilies or one jalapeño ring in the bottom of each small pastry shell.

Combine eggs, cream, salt and pepper and Tabasco. Pour over cheese and chilies in pastry shells.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes.
