Reviews for Mexican Egg Casserole
"While my sister was in Mexico with her husband visiting relatives of his, they barely cooked their eggs dishes, which my sister thought was gross. She obligingly cooked one longer and received lots of grumbles and frowns; otherwise, it was quite enjoyable to learn their culture. Dish is delicious. Thanks"
"Can this casserole be made the day before and baked in the morning?"
"I left out the hot pepper sauce but this was a very tasteful dish and my son loved it!! I think the combination of cheeses made this a winner in our book."
"Always enjoy this one"
