I found this wonderful cookbook, Real New Mexico Chile. It has such unsual recipes in it and this was one I had to try. It is billed as the New Mexico version of Eggs Benedict. I made this using whole wheat pastry flour and blue cornmeal. However, it will work just as well with your choice of cornmeal and all-purpose flour. The eggs can be fried or use my Microwave Poached Eggs Microwave Poached Eggs. Serve this with a fruit salad for a nice weekend brunch.
