  • 4 chili peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup light cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Generously butter a shallow casserole dish. Melt the butter in a small skillet. Add the onion, garlic, and chili peppers and toss to coat. Stir over medium heat until the onion is tender.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and cream until well blended. Add the onion mixture, salt, and cilantro. Stir in the cheese and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until the surface is nicely browned and the custard is set.
