Mexican Egg Stacks

“Taken from the Iowa Egg Council website submitted by Karisa Cheddie. I was looking for something to do with some eggs that were heading toward the end of their shelf life. I am a sucker for southwestern type eats. This was good and reheats well. I posted the original recipe, but I added black beans to it in the bottom layer the first time with great results and I added vegetarian refried beans to the top layer the second time with great results. This receip is a good base and you can play with the ingredients to find your perfect fit.”
