  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Make the salsa: In a blender or food processor puree tomatillos, garlic, onions, cilantro, water, jalapeno pepper and salt. In a saucepan, bring the salsa to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer the salsa into a bowl and set the bowl aside.
  3. Make the filling: Put the chopped tomatoes into a sieve, and let them drain for 10 minutes or more.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the bell peppers, and saute them until they are soft, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add the eggs, and turn the heat to low. Stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, let the eggs cook until they begin to set. Take the skillet off the heat and sprinkle in the salt, pepper, 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese and the drained tomatoes; stir gently.
  5. Lay a flour tortilla on a work surface. Spread about 2/3 cup of the egg filling down the middle of the tortilla. Drop 1 tablespoon of the sour cream on top of the eggs. Fold in the sides of the tortilla to partly cover the egg mixture, then roll the tortilla, folding in the outer edges as you roll, to enclose the egg mixture completely. Continue this process with the remaining filling and the tortillas.
  6. Place the filled tortillas close together in a 10x16 inch casserole dish. At this point you can cover the dish and chill it for up to 24 hours.
  7. Pour the salsa over the filled tortillas, and sprinkle them with the 1/2 cup grated cheese. Cover the dish with foil, and bake the casserole for 15 minutes (25 minutes if it has been chilled). Serve hot.

I have chickens and a surplus of eggs so I'm always looking for good egg recipes.This is one of the best I've found. I used 8 eggs and 10 egg whites, 2% cheese and no sour cream. My only complai...

This recipe came out beautifully. The success of this dish depends on the texture of the eggs, so do not overcook them during the initial scramble. Keep them as wet as you can and still hold the...

Yummy! A really different way to serve eggs.

This recipe is HUGE - so plan to feed a crowd or have LOTS of leftovers... which is not a problem, because this is GREAT! I give it a four only because the salsa was too watery and made the dis...

This recipe sounded very appetizing, until I made it and decided it was quite bland. I love salsa verde and have made many recipes using it before, but this was one I did not particularly enjoy...

Maybe I did something wrong. Hubby said it was good, but I thought it was too mushy and needed a little some thing else, like maybe more veggies and perhaps beans? I don't know, I doubt I'll att...

Delicious brunch option but could be spiced up with some chopped sausage. Can be prepared ahead for entertaining. Way more filling than tortillas. I cut the number of filling ingredients in hal...

This was just ok for me,it was a little bland...if I make it again I will definetly buy the salsa instead of make it as a time saver..and reduce the amount of eggs it was to much...I would also ...
