Vegetable oil or spray -- as needed
1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 garlic cloves -- chopped
2 ancho chilies -- stems removed, and

Cover the dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Uncover
and bake for another 20 minutes, or until brown and bubbly. Let sit for
20 minutes. Serve cut into squares or circles, or spoon from the
casserole. Sprinkle with snipped chives.
