Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Slice the anaheim peppers into 4 long strips, removing the seeds and stem. Toss in the avocado oil, place on a baking sheet, and roast for 10 minutes.
  • To a large bowl, add the egg, cottage cheese, cauliflower rice, shredded cheese, roasted green chilies, sea salt, and pepper.
  • Dice the tortillas into small pieces, and place them in a 9″ x 13″ glass casserole dish. Add the tortillas to the bottom, then pour the egg mixture over top. Mix fully so that the tortillas are combined with the egg mixture. Place the roasted anaheim pepper strips over the casserole, and bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes, or until the egg is set in the center.
  • Allow cooling for 15 minutes before slicing into. Enjoy!
