This casserole is also great when made with fresh long green chiles. Makes a wonderful brunch dish, but we also have it for lunch quite often.

Great egg casserole. My Husband and I had it for dinner one evening and it was a great change from the norm. Next time I think I'll try the diced chili's instead so we won't even need a knife at all. Will definitely have this again. Read More

I used one 7 oz. can & one small can of chili peppers as I thought two 7 oz. cans seemed like a lot for 4 eggs. Anyway the chile pepper taste was still overwhelming for us. Different strokes for different folks. Maybe we would have liked it better if the recipe had only one 7 oz. can or even just one small can which would still have given it a litle zip. Read More

I have had this recipe for years. I use swiss Cheese instead of chedder. Another way I have used it was as an appetizer(cut into small bite-size pieces). Read More

Made this for bruch as soon as it was sent to me. Very simple very quick...but warning--very hot. We liked it but it needed the French bread and tropical fruit salad I served with it to mellow the taste. Read More

I used this as a dinner side dish for something different. I used chopped chiles and added a layer of Swiss cheese on top of the chedder cheese. Then I sprinkled crumbled bacon on the mixture before I put it in the oven. The bacon added a nice crunch and texture to it. Very delicious Read More

We enjoyed this dish very much. However it can't possibly provide eight servings. To serve four I used 2 4oz. cans of whole chilis but kept everything else the same. Will definitely prepare it again. Carol Read More

This was soooo good! It reminded me of a chili relleno. I doubled the recipe added a couple of extra eggs extra cheese a scant 1/2tsp. salt 1/4tsp. pepper and 1/4 tsp. garlic pepper. Yummy with hot sauce and sour cream. Read More

I love this recipe. I also add thin slices of ham into the mix with each layer of green chiles. It turnes out great and is a low carb keeper. Read More
