Green Chile Tortilla Scramble

Recipe by  

"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!

Simple, fast, and delicious! I followed the recipe and used two heaping tablespoons of 505 Southwestern Medium Roasted Green Chiles (this product comes in a jar already chopped). Next time, I'll add some chorizo, breakfast sausage, or bacon to the pan. Sometimes it's the simple recipes that turn out best. Thank you bakerbob.
