Delightful brunch! I used about 1 tablespoon of butter to cook the onion and garlic. This is the time of the year that local green chiles is being harvested, so I used local chiles. Also, I opted to serve the sauce "chunky" style. Used egg substitute for the eggs and feta cheese. Cut the recipe back to serve 2 except for the sauce which I will serve later in the week with burritos. Thanks Barb for a wonderful recipe.
