Green Chili Egg Bake

This is one of my absolute favorites. It is perfectly fine vegetarian keto, or you can put bacon in it for the meat lovers.

Amazing with a little sour cream and salsa! Avocado would make it even better.


Green Chili Egg Bake


  • 2 Tbsp butter, lard, or bacon fat (for greasing the baking dish)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cans green chilis (mild or hot depending on how you like your spice), drained
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheddar, Monterey jack, or other cheese of your choice
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of choice (for sprinkling over the top)
  • 1/2 lb chopped, cooked bacon (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×11 baking dish.

In a large bowl, beat all ingredients together (reserving one cup of shredded cheese). Pour into the baking dish and top with remaining cheese.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the egg bake is set and doesn’t “wiggle” when jostled.

Enjoy it topped with sour cream, guacamole, avocado, salsa, red onion, or even jalapenos.
