    Kathy at's Note:

    Great breakfast casserole for company. Adapted from the "Creme de Colorado" cookbook. If you don't have avocados or they are not ripe, you can substitute premade guacamole for the avocados.

      Just finished eating this for brunch - it really hit the spot! I used prepared guacamole which was yummy. I think homemade guac would be better & in general, guac has more flavor than plain avocaadoes anyway. Another idea was to use a diced poblano sauteed with the onion instead of canned chiles. Dh suggested salsa instead of tomatoes. YUMMY STUFF!! It was perfect after an early morning arctic soccer game, lol. Thanks, Kathy!

      This made a wonderful Sunday Brunch! I did add a pinch of taco seasoning to the white sauce for a leetle zip; and used some diced pickled Jalepenos for the green chiles. Leaves a nice tingle on the taste buds. Not too hot nor bland. Made for Elves Cook-a-Thon in Cooking Photos.

      I made this tonight. I wanted to cut down on the fat content, and substituted 1 cup of chicken stock for 1 cup of milk. I also cut down on the cheese. I thought it was very easy to make. We really enjoyed the dish, and I will make it again. We have an "egg night" every week, but my husband doesn't like breakfast for dinner. This dish passed his test.
