Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 cup mini colored peppers, cored, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 10 eggs, large
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, kosher
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 jar salsa verde, divided
  • 6-10” tortillas, flour
  • 2 1/2 cups, Colby jack cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, fresh, chopped
  • 2 cups cheese sauce, prepared
  • Optional for garnish: diced avocado, halved grape tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream, salsa verde

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Beat eggs, salt, pepper, and water in a medium bowl.
  • 3 In a large, nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add peppers and onions; saute for 4 minutes or until tender.
  • 4 Pour egg mixture into the pepper mixture. Cook, without stirring, until the eggs begin to set on the bottom, about 1 minute. Using a spatula, stir the eggs and swipe the sides of the pan until set but still soft. Be careful not to over stir.
  • 5 Spread 2 tablespoons salsa verde over the center of each flour tortilla. Top with 1/2 cup egg mixture, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese and a generous pinch of cilantro. Roll up and place seam-side down in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over the top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 6 Bake 30 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Serve with desired toppings.
