Ingredients
4 cups shredded cheddar-jack cheese
4 oz chopped green chilies
6 large eggs
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1 tsp oil or butter
Optional: 8 oz cooked crumbled sausage
Garnish: Sour Cream and Cilantro
Directions
Prepare your casserole with dish with the oil or butter. Just a light coat will do the trick. Set it aside. Beat the eggs. Add the cooked sausage if you like and set aside. Mix the cheese, chili powder and cumin with the green chilies. Layer the cheese-chili mixture and eggs in a casserole dish. Bake at 300 for 45 minutes or until the center is firm. Cool slightly and cut into squares. You can leave them in the dish or place on a pretty plate for your brunch buffet. Garnish with sour cream and a sprig of cilantro.

The original version came from my Aunt Etta Mae, but I've tweaked it a bit over the years. Delicious and simple is the only way to describe this one. As a side note, canned green chilies work well. However, the mild flavor of roasted Anaheim Peppers are a great option if you have any remaining from your late summer garden. Leftovers refrigerate well for nibbling later.
