Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Cup Mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 4 Ounces diced green chiles, canned
  • 1 Teaspoon Mexican seasoning blend (no sodium)
  • 3/4 Cups Blue Diamond Original Unsweetened Almond Breeze
  • 6 large square egg roll wrappers

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F and spray six (1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cup) ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.

Press an egg roll wrapper into each cup, pressing all the way into the edges.

Place equal amounts of cheese, green onions and green chiles into each lined cup. 

Whisk together remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and pour into cups. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until eggs are set when cups are gently shaken, tenting with foil if tops brown too quickly. 

Mexican Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Mexican Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.

Mexican Wine Pairing

Tempranillo or other light Spanish red wine types with paella, even seafood paella. Various other wines depending on what rice is cooked with; see Pasta Recipes and other individual food types.
