Fluffy green chili eggs topped with crunchy tortilla chips makes for a surprising and delicious breakfast dish. Green Chili Egg Casserole will quickly become a family favorite.
I love to stay at bed & breakfasts when I travel. Quaint hotels and good food is the perfect combination to make my heart happy. And I love it even more when they share their recipes with me when we check out.
One of the best breakfasts I have enjoyed at a B&B was in my own backyard, The Lion and Rose Victorian B & B. When I stayed there with a group of girlfriends we were served this delicious green chili egg casserole. They were the lightest and fluffiest eggs with a delicious Mexican flavor. And they were topped with crunchy tortilla chips!
The recipe may seem a little strange but trust me on this one. You blend everything up in the blender and then cook the eggs up in a frying pan.
Place the cooked eggs into a baking dish and sprinkle with cheese and chilies and bake. I used my cast iron pan because it sits on my stove top and it is easy to grab but you could definitely use a 8 x 8 baking pan.
And after you take it out of the oven you sprinkle the green chili egg casserole with chips, salsa and a little avocado and serve. I promise, these are delicious and fluffy and you will love them!
