Author Janssen Bradshaw


  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 3/4 c milk half-and-half, or cream (or some combination of those)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese I sometimes do half cheddar and half mozzarella, depending on what I have around
  • 1 4- ounce can diced mild green chiles
  • 1 9- inch pie crust you can use a frozen one or make your own.


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Heat the oil in skillet over medium heat and add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about five minutes, until the onions are soft-ish.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining ingredients (except the crust of course) together in a medium bowl. Add in the onions when they are done. Pour filling into your crust and bake until golden brown and set in the center, about 40-45 minutes.
