Recipe & picture courtesy of Good Housekeeping

  • 4 tablespoon(s) margarine or butter
  • 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) reduced-fat (2%) milk, warmed
  • 6 ounce(s) Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 large egg white
  • 3 ounce(s) smoked ham, chopped
  • 1 can(s) (4 1/2-ounce) chopped mild green chiles, drained
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 2-quart soufflé dish.
  2. In heavy 2-quart saucepan, melt margarine on low. Add flour and cook 1 minute, stirring. With wire whisk, gradually mix in milk. Cook on medium until sauce thickens and boils, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in Pepper Jack and cook just until cheese melts and sauce is smooth, stirring. Remove saucepan from heat.
  3. In medium bowl, with whisk, lightly beat egg yolks; gradually whisk in hot cheese sauce. Stir in ham and green chiles.
  4. In large bowl, with mixer on high speed, beat 5 egg whites until stiff peaks form when beaters are lifted. With rubber spatula, gently fold one-third of beaten egg whites into cheese mixture. Fold in remaining whites just until blended.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared soufflé dish. Bake about 50 minutes or until soufflé is puffed and golden-brown and knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Serve immediately.
