I love this recipe and have used it many times. FN took it down, the main one. But I found it again and it's great -- but this makes enough for a 9 X 13 baking dish. I cut it in half and had enough for a 7 x 11 dish. Go short on the salt, use extra sharp cheddar, be generous with the diced green chilis, and add garlic salt to taste at the end. Wonderful!! FYI, 1 1/2 large eggs is 3/8 cup! Beat 2, and take out 1/8 c or 2 T!
