Welcome to 2009!
We'll start off the new year with one of our guests' all-time favorite recipes, Green Chili Egg Casserole. What's great about this recipe is that it's perfect for breakfast pot-lucks; it is made the night before and allowed to sit overnight. The next morning, all you have to do is pop it in the oven!
