Mexican Baked Eggs Cast Iron Comfort Food

   Awhile back, I came across this really delicious Mexican Baked Egg recipe that seemed easy enough to make. My sweet husband decided to make it for dinner one night, using supplies we had on hand, and with a little flare of his own added to it! Ours came out so delicious! This dish is a comfort food of sorts, and really hits that spot when you're craving a hearty Mexican dish.

 To make this dish, you need an approximate of the following ingredients:

6 large eggs 
shredded cheese
diced peppers
chopped onions
1 tsp olive oil
seasoning (we used Cajun, black pepper, and garlic)
1 can of chopped tomatoes in juice
1 can of beans rinsed and drained
1 can of diced green chiles

(In our recipe, we didn't really follow along exactly, we just used what we had on hand and added in tator rounds for extra deliciousness.)
   Preheat oven to 450F. Oil your cast iron pan and begin layering the tator rounds. In a separate bowl, mix together the canned tomatoes with juice, beans, and diced green chilies (I think he used pico de gallo for ours) and place all that atop of the tator rounds. Lots of cheese was also sprinkled throughout all of this. We used Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheese. Once all this was layered into the pan, the eggs were cracked on top of it, and placed in the oven to bake until fully cooked. When the eggs were cooked, more cheese was sprinkled across the top, and set back in the oven on the broil to give the top a nice melted crispyness. Once cooked through, pull out the oven to cool for a few minutes. And enjoy!!

   I recommend adding extra pico de gallo and sour cream to the top! This dish was so very delicious. It's fantastic! One we will definitely be adding to our recipes to continue making in the future!
