Recipe: Southwestern Egg Casserole

I have something to share with you.

I love brunch.  I get to have both breakfast and lunch but when it comes to designing the menu, I struggle a bit.  See, I am a little(ok, A LOT) picky when it comes to eggs.  I only eat them a certain way and 9 times out of 10 restaurants mess them up even when I place a very specific order.  But I wanted to offer friends an egg option when I entertained at my home. So of course, I asked a few friends to share a recipe and all three friends shared the exact same recipe with me.  With that kind of recommendation I knew this recipe would be good but also found it super easy!
