Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is a Bobby Flay recipe that appeared in the Wall Street Journal. It is served with black beans, avocado relish, and my recipes ( Bobby Flay's) for red and green chili sauces, Red Chili Sauce and Green Chili Sauce.It makes a wonderful brunch with some melon or fruit salad on the side. I've had something very similar to these eggs when we've stayed in Santa Fe.
