Pair it with organic corn tortillas or allowable grain toast.  Top it with sliced olives, salsa, sliced avocado or Nourishing Traditions turkey sausage.  (As of this writing I am not an Amazon affiliate.  This is just too good not to share.)  Double it in a 9 X 13 dish for a bigger crowd and more leftovers.


Can 'Hatch' whole green chiles

5 eggs

1/8 cup sour cream

2 cups grated cheese.  I used smoked cheddar and Gouda.

2 tsp.  Herbamare ®

Walnut oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread a Tbsp of walnut oil around bottom and sides of 8 X 8 glass baking dish.

Rinse green chiles and open to splay out, remove any seeds.  Pat dry on paper towel.

Arrange to cover bottom of baking dish.

Whisk eggs; Add sour cream; Whisk until well combined.

Add Herbamare® and whisk.

Pour in baking dish.

Top with cheese.

Bake on middle rack of oven for 15 minutes.  Then check every 5 minutes until center is set.  It will puff up.  Done!  Serve piping hot with accompaniments.
