Green Chile Frittata

Melody, a friend of mine posted this on her facebook, and so I gave it a try. It's simple to make and very tasty. I believe you could make this up for any meal of the day. I halved the recipe when I made it.

Green Chile Frittata

10 eggs beaten
1/2 Cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 (4oz) cans diced and drained
1 16oz container low_fat cottage cheese
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 Cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 400*. lightly grease 9x13" baking dish

In a large bowl, mix eggs, flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the green chile peppers, cottage cheese, and melted butter. Poor into greased baking dish.

Bake 15 minutes at 400*, reduce heat to 325* and bake an additional 25-35 minutes.

When I made the half recipe, I did not bake it for 35 minuted. I inserted a toothpick, and took it out of the oven when the toothpick came out clean, I took it out at 29 minutes.


  1. This looks very delicious, but how could it not be with so much cheese. yumm...cheese....

    And also I think you are missing the "chili peppers" part on the recipe. It just says 2 cans drained or something.

  2. Sylv, did you eat this as a main course or a side dish?

  3. I used this as a side dish for dinner. If I were to eat it for breakfast or lunch, it would be the main course.

  4. I have no idea why I coming up as grandpa sparky.
    This is really Sylvia
