Green Chili Cheddar Eggs Recipe



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

8 eggs
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.

  4. I love how you can incorporate a ton of veggies into a dish like this. I'll have to try the green chilis - I love spicy but the rest of my family does not, so this might be a happy medium. Your pictures make me hungry!

  11. We can't get green chiles at every grocery store around here so when I see them I stock up. I love their flavour and you're right, they're not spicy at all. I prefer breakfast for dinner over breakfast for breakfast. :o) Looks delicious!
