Beat eggs lightly, then add milk and flour, mixing until flour is absorbed. Stir in: baking powder, spices and salt. Stir in chiles and three cups of the Jack cheese. Pour mixture into a pre-sprayed baking dish. Cover evenly with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until golden brown on top. Cool for 10 minutes, then cut into 8 or 10 even squares.
Note: some of the “puff” will away as the dish cools. Top with a thin coating of warm marinara sauce and serve immediately.
