      So flavorful with roasted poblanos, chorizo, tortillas, eggs and monterey jack cheese. Fantastic make-ahead dish that you just pop in the oven in the morning.

      This looked just gorgeous coming out of the oven! I'm not giving any stars because I substituted soy chorizo and used whole milk instead of half and half. I also subbed anaheim pepper for the poblanos because my husband said the poblanos looked all wrinkled. I enjoyed this dish but my husband didn't. He doesn't like too many foods mixed together. Even using the milder peppers this had a bit of heat to it. I would love to hear how it is using all the correct ingredients. Thanks Blink!
