Green Chili Cheddar Eggs

This healthy meal would make a great brunch. In our case, dinner but we love breakfast for dinner.  It made for several days of leftovers so I was able to enjoy it for breakfast too!

I love green chiles, I was a little cautious about putting 2 cans in here but I am SO glad I did. I think people tend to shy away from the green chiles as they think they will be spicy.  Well, they aren’t really spicy, just super flavorful.
We ate this with an awesome southwestern hash that complemented the eggs beautifully.  There was nothing spicy about this meal, just full of flavor.  It was also very hearty and filling as well as incredibly healthy!

I like this one! I have started substituting 1 fire roasted and seeded poblano chile for 1 can of diced chilies in dishes like this for that extra “oompf!”.

But sometimes, it’s just too easy for me to grab for a can of them, ha ha.

Great post!
