    Very good, as previously stated it was a lot of work on a Sunday morning, but it was really good!! Family enjoyed it all. I did make a couple of changes. I used less butter, I just did not think it needed that much and it was not missed. Added a little extra ham because I wanted to use it all up and there was not enough to do anything else with it. I would expect we would be making this again. Thanks for posting. ZWT3

    Delicioso! I had roasted peppers left over so this was a snap to put together. I now have a use for all my leftover peppers! This was fantastic! The recipe is easily reduced as well. Thanks Ellie!!!

    Great recipe! I cannot get poblano chilis so I subbed a banana pepper. Made a half recipe as it was two of us and this, served with Chef Kate's Mole Pinto Beans Recipe #173251 and Charlotte J's Salsa Recipe #81263 made for a fantastic Mexican dinner.

    Superior! A bit of work, but well worth it. I roasted the peppers and made the sauce the night before. Then it was a breeze to fix the eggs in the morning and they were delicious. I used ham and jack cheese.
