    I tripled the recipe for a Breakfast Potluck. Cook time was a little longer but it turned perfect and a great hit.

    What a nice creamy frittata! Made as posted. Appreciate recipes that use ingredients that I have on hand, and are posted in correct order. Love the green chiles in it! Thanks GW!

    I scaled this back for 3 and the DM and I had a wonderful pig out and between us gobbled it all up. For the DM's sake I omitted the chillies and had to use a cheddar cheese as monterey jack is not available in Australia but added a generous serve of freshly ground pepper to the mix and sprinkled a smokey paprika on the top before popping into a 175C fan forced oven for 25 minutes. It was like eating a cross between a cheesey omelette and a soufle, delicious, thank you Galley Wench, made for Went to the Market.

    What a great recipe. Put everything in an 8 x 8 pan, popped into the toaster oven, and 30 minutes later had a wonderful breakfast. Served it with charro beans, salsa, sour cream, and tortillas. So very good and so glad you shared this one.

    Excellent combination of flavors. I would not change a thing about this recipe. Served this with extra salsa on the side. Thanks GW
