A friend of mine made something similar to this a few years back for breakfast. It was so good I had to have the recipe. This is definitely one of my savory favorites. Thanks Linda for sharing your recipe.

My 11 year old LOVES this. Has requested several times. I used 1 can of chilies, and 1 can of jalapenos the 2nd time I made this. (what I had on hand). Really good. Thanks for a great recipe

This was SO good, just like all of your other recipes I've tried. Not really eggy at all. Great flavor. I made it ahead and popped in the fridge til I was ready to bake it. I will be making this again for sure.

Enjoyed this while visiting CHef ~V....very tasty especially with your spicy dip! :) Can't wait to make this again. Nice recipe, leftovers were just as good. CAn be garnished to your tastes, as another reviewer mentioned. A dollop of salsa, sour cream or a spicey creamy dip (Like V's) are just perfect!
