Green Chili Oven Frittata

We received a request for a recipe on our Instagram page @adamshousebb for our Green Chili Oven Frittata. This is a staple here at the Adams House B&B as it is easy to make, feeds a lot at one time, and has some of that Texas flair with the chilies added. Have fun with it by adding or subtracting ingredients as you like. This recipe is also in our cookbook Our Texas Table which can be purchased at the B&B or on our website at www.theadamshouse.com. Happy cooking!
