It seems to be the season for showers (baby and bridal) and I have used this recipe many times for a brunch menu for above said showers. It is really good to make ahead if you have company and you want to have a delicious breakfast and "wow" them. It's always an option to leave out the green chile--but we like our food spicy around here. Credit goes to my good friend, Kaylene for this recipe!!

Bake at 350 uncovered for 1 hour or until set and slightly brown on top. This can also be made ahead and frozen (raw) and brought out for guests. When frozen cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. 1st hour covered 2nd hour uncovered.
