Made this for a large holiday brunch. I substituted red peppers for green. The baking time seemed very off for me. It took almost an hour but was delicious.

I make this with corn tortillas and black beans and cilantro added. Great recipe that you can half if you need to. I also use only one whole eggg and about eight whites.

I made this last summer for a family gathering and it was a big hit. I made it just as directed in the recipe.
