Chile Cheese Egg Puff

I had my friend Danielle's baby shower today, in which I brought this dish. Today was the first time I had ever made it, so I was not sure if it was going to turn out okay or not. I figured I better hold off posting the recipe until I knew for sure that it was post-worthy. Well, it was totally post-worthy! It was really easy to make and super yummy.

Originally, I got this recipe from an old co-worker a few years ago, and I never got the chance to make it. I have always wanted to save it for a special occasion, because it uses a lot of eggs and cheese and seems a little too indulgent for everyday breakfast food. Well, all the planets finally aligned and I decided to make it for Danielle's shower. Oh man, it was good. I will definitely keep this dish as a go-to recipe for parties and potlucks!
