Green Chile Tortilla Scramble

Rated as 4.44 out of 5 Stars

"This was a favorite among our guests at the bed and breakfast where I cooked for many years. If you wish, add sautéed onions or diced tomatoes to the mix. I sometimes serve this dish with pinto or black beans and a warmed flour tortilla. This dish also lends itself well to be served with a side of chorizo sausage or any other breakfast meat of your liking."

This was a great way to use leftover corn tortillas! I used a pizza cutter to cut the tortillas into strips. Try cotija cheese in place of the cheddar sometime!

Delicious and simple. Came together in less than 10 mins. Used Hatch jarred green chilis I picked up in Walmart. Similar to canned green chilis. Might add some garlic next time too. Served w/ a ...

I used tortilla strip toppings for salads so they would be crunchy and use hot green chiles to up the wow factor. Quick, easy and worth making again.

I used bacon grease to try my tortilla strips. I fried them until they were crisp. Otherwise the tortilla strips wind up being mushy. I used 2 hatch chili's and did not measure anything.

I used olive oil instead of butter to cut down on fat. It was good but nothing spectacular. Simple tasting. Topped it with salsa and it did need it because it was a little bit bland. I used a w...
