This dish is a favorite of ours from Santa Fe. A little B&B called Adobe Abode had this recipe on their website, so we thought we'd try it for breakfast. The dish is very easy to make and serve. Accompany the souffle with warm tomatillo sauce and fresh melon. Our favorite breakfast beverage with the green chile bite of the souffle is mango juice.

I made this exactly as written except for I only made half of the recipe. I felt this was a mexican type of egg dish as written, but plan to try it with bacon or sausage and onions rather than the green chilis and corn, just personal/family taste preference. Will definitely be making again with different vegetable and meat. Thanks Major K Woods for a great recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2008.
Very good recipe. Will definitely make again. We just bought some fresh roasted Hatch green chiles and have been looking for ways to use them. Since my wife doesn't care for corn, we substituted 1/3 lb of sweet italian sausage (2 links removed from casings) and it was wonderful. We also used the equivalent of 2 small cans of chiles. It's definitely a keeper.
