Tomatoes and green chilies add color to this dish. This cheesy egg dish has a zip to it. It makes a great breakfast, brunch or even lunch or casual dinner dish.

Excellent casserole recipe! I used it to make individual casserole cups with my cupcake pans. Did nothing to the recipe, except added about 3/4 lb pork breakfast sausage, cooked and drained, to the batter. Then baked 350 degrees for about 20 minutes in well-greased cupcake pan. For added fun, I used corn tortilla pieces as a "crust" on some in the pan, before pouring in egg mixture. Made it easier to get them out for sure! I also tried minis - baked for about 12 minutes in mini-muffin pan. Thanks!! Very versatile and tasty recipe.
