Green Chile Balls with Chicken and Cheese

I woke up the morning after Thanksgiving, and turned on Pioneer Woman (because I apparently never get tired of food).  She was making some sort of meatball, and my mind started wandering to green chile (which happens more than it probably should).

They haven’t expanded Farley’s into the 505 yet, so I decided to create my own Jack Rabbit Droppings.  And as much as I love jalapenos, I tend to love green chile a bit more, so I used them…
