"I love to fix this spicy scrambled egg dish for friends and family," writes Kay Kropff from Canyon, Texas. TIP: "It's a meal in itself, but I serve it with muffins or biscuits, fresh fruit juice and coffee," she notes.
This recipe takes me back to when my grandmother would visit. While she prepared one of her delicious meals, she'd give me dough to make my own tortillas. With such "tasty" memories, it's no surprise this is my most asked for recipe!
Tomatoes and green chilies give color and zip to this very cheesy egg bake. It makes a hearty breakfast or brunch entree - or you can enjoy a square topped with salsa for lunch or supper.

I found this recipe on a trip to Southern California. Since then, this versatile dish has become one of my family's favorites. I serve it as a special breakfast, for brunch or even Sunday night supper. Sausage or ham goes well with this snappy dish...and don't forget some corn muffins!
Burritos for breakfast? Why not! These zesty little handfuls will wake up your taste buds and start your day with a smile. And you can make and freeze them ahead, then just pop them into the microwave for a quick meal.
Chock-full of ground beef, cheddar cheese, onion and green pepper, this swift south-of-the-border bake is guaranteed to liven up any meal. Just ask Mary Johnston, who serves the zippy dish at her Wasilla, Alaska home.
