Friday Food Fix - Green Chili Eggs


My dad’s side of the family is from New Mexico and this is where I learned this fun four ingredient breakfast egg recipe. This is one of my “go to” comfort breakfasts. The nice thing is you can make it for 1 or 100. It is very easy to scale this recipe for any size group. Down in the southwest they put green chilies on everything, even on hamburgers. I have come to love the chilies on everything. It is a great source of protein and can be made in less than 5 min. so no excuses from you “I don’t have time to cook breakfast” people. It takes you 5 min. just to stop for your morning coffee or go through a drive thru. NO EXCUSES! Just good food!
