This healthy meal would make a great brunch. In our case, dinner but we love breakfast for dinner. It made for several days of leftovers so I was able to enjoy it for breakfast too!
I love green chiles, I was a little cautious about putting 2 cans in here but I am SO glad I did. I think people tend to shy away from the green chiles as they think they will be spicy. Well, they aren't really spicy, just super flavorful.
We ate this with an awesome southwestern hash that complemented the eggs beautifully. There was nothing spicy about this meal, just full of flavor. It was also very hearty and filling as well as incredibly healthy!
Green Chile Eggs Recipe
2 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. flour (I used gluten free)
4 oz. cheddar cheese
2 (4 oz) cans chopped green chiles
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 in. pie plate with cooking spray or just a wee bit of olive oil.
Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the milk and flour, then mix in the green chilies and cheese. Pour into the prepared pie plate.
Bake in the oven until the center is set, about 35 - 40 minutes.
