Recipe by Shirl

Recipe given to me by Darice--delicious. Easily warmed up in the microwave. One reason I take this to family gatherings easy breakfast that anyone can heat up when ready. Please fix Darice's Salsa to go with--it really hits the spot.

I used Ortega Whole Chili's from a can instead of fresh ones & the recipe came out great. It was very easy to make & everyone loved it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grate cheese.
  2. Deseed chilies.
  3. Layer chilies and cheese in a greased 11x9-inch casserole dish, beginning with chilies and ending with cheese. You must have two layers of chilies and two of cheese, cheese being the last layer. I use the aluminum foil pans you get in the store that come with a plastic cover when taking to pot lucks or family gatherings, easy clean up.
  4. In separate bowl beat eggs, add flour, beat until smooth.
  5. Pour over cheese/chilie mixture.
  6. Bake 30 minutes at 350°F.
  7. Pour tomato sauce and chilie salsa over top and bake 15-20 minutes more.
  8. Let stand 10 minute before serving.
  9. Enjoy!
