"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." — KGNEP

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.
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.
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).
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.
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
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.
Awesome! I'm going to try it again with pie crust, like the previous poster recommeded. Yummy. I loved it, and I'm a vegetarian
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.
