I left out the monterey cheese and used regular milk, this is GREAT! Nice and filling and the cottage cheese gives a nice flavor.

Found this delicious breakfast to be very easy to make, but then I'm one who doesn't yet mind the dicing & slicing, & by hand, even! Even went the whole healthy route for a change! Because of the red tomato, & for some additional color, I used an orange bell pepper instead of the red one! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
