2 tsp olive oil
1 small can, diced green chiles
1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs , separated
1 cup pepper jack cheese, grated
Black pepper to taste
Preheat broiler. Pour olive oil into a 10-inch ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat.
Separate the egg whites and yolks. Beat the egg whites until you get soft peeks then fold the yolks back into the whites.
Pour eggs into the pan then add the chiles over the top and cook until almost set but still runny on top, about 2 minutes.
Sprinkle cheese over eggs and broil until cheese is melted and browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
Slide frittata onto a serving platter and cut into wedges.
I always loved Chile Relleno's and wanted something that still had the flavor without being deep fried, so with some experimentation I came up with this recipe. You can substitute any cheese you like the traditional cheese is usually mozzarella.
