I guess that means that Caliche's should close their doors. Seriously, Italian food is not Mexican food and adding Green Chile to Lasagne ruins it. Would you want wasabi in your burrito?
Oh yeah...no PLACE for chile in Italian food...except for spicy Italian sausage with red pepper, roasted red peppers on or in almost anything, Sausage and green/red peppers, the classic Naples Puttanesca sauce, and my favorite: Arrabiata (angry) sauce, made spicy with lots of crushed hot red chiles. There are more examples, but I think you get the point.
One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Mexico City does Lasagna Azteca, with corn, roasted green chile inside and red chile sauce, toasted pinons, etc. A wonderful fusion-style dish.
Better stick with the Chef Boy-R-Dee, Bob. But of course I'm a heretic...I've been known to put cheese on my hamburger ;)

And green chile wantan's taste horrible as well. It's called fusion cooking which can lead to flavors never imagined before.

LOL - Years ago I was shocked when they brought the "juice glasses" hot from the dishwasher. I insisted they at least bring ice to cool the glass down before I poured my over-priced white wine.

Double Eagle on the plaza in Mesilla has green chile vodka on tap, from a big glass jar.
