    This hearty and delicious recipe was inspired by two recipes: the filling from Egg Enchiladas and the sauce from Santa Fe Enchiladas. We really enjoy this for brunch!

      As much as I like to think I try to make 1st time recipes just the way they're written, when it comes to jalapeno peppers & cumin, I usually cut back, as I did with this one ~ Used 3/4 teaspoon of cumin & most of 1 jalapeno! Still, we were very satisfied with the resulting enchiladas & would enjoy having them again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      What a great twist on enchiladas! My first inclination was to think this was a "breakfast burrito." But the texture of the boiled eggs instead of scrambled and the spice mixture made for a perfect evening meal. As easy as this is, I'm already thinking of ways to make variations - such as adding black beans or other sauted veggies into the egg mixture. But it doesn't need a thing for it to remain a 5-star recipe in my book!
