This is what you need:
1 1/2 cups of Shredded Cheese
2 cups of Whole Milk
2 tbsp Flour
2 tbsp Hot Sauce
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
2 Green Onions Chopped (optional)
Optional Toppings and Sides:
Chicken or Carnitas
This what you do:
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Drain the canned chilies and slice them open so they lay flat. Combine the eggs, milk, flour, hot sauce, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a bowl and whisk thoroughly. Layer the bottom of a 9x13 glass baking dish with the chilies and over that add a large handful of cheese, then add another layer of chilies and cheese, then another. There should be enough for 3 layers. Over the top, pour the egg and milk mixture and add any remaining cheese. Bake for 45-50 minutes until set and the top is browned. Remove from oven, let sit for a couple minutes and serve!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 45-50 minutes
Total Time: 60-65 minutes
First thing to do is heat your oven to 350 degrees. The drain the can of chillies and take each one out and open them so they lay flat. You should be able to do it with your fingers pretty easily.
Takes about 3 minutes.
Next, crack your eggs in a bowl and whisk together. Then add 2 cups of milk, 2 tbsp flour, 2 tbsp hot sauce, 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper and 1/4 tsp garlic powder. Whisk together well and set aside.
It is easier to whisk the eggs first before adding the other ingredients, but if you forget and add all of the ingredients at the same time it is not a big deal.
Now you can build the first layer. Lay out the chillies on the bottom of a 9x13 glass baking sheet covering most of it. Does not have to be perfect at all. Then add a big handful of cheese. Repeat this process two more times for a total of three layers.
Does not have to cover the bottom completely. Just throw them in.
Layer 1 is complete. Do this exact thing 2 more times.
Then pour the egg and milk mixture right over the top, throw on any more of the cheese and add the green onions.
Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. When ready, remove from oven and let it sit for a couple minutes.
Its all about the avocado and cilantro (and sour cream).
Slice and serve! This is also good at room temperature, so it makes a great potluck dish!
