I made this for breakfast yesterday. Had a wonderful creamy texture, not to mention the great cheese flavor. Increase the spices if you like hotter.

I made this for breakfast this morning to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. The family and I loved it. Had a creamy texture with plenty of flavor and color from the peppers and onion. Lots of cheese which makes it so yummy. Thanks Nurse Di.
