    List of Ingredients

    1 sprays cooking spray
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 small onion(s), chopped
    1 1/2 Tbsp canned chipotle peppers, drained, chopped
    6 3/4 oz canned green chili peppers, mild, diced, drained
    3 oz low-fat cheddar or colby cheese, shredded (about 3/4 cup)
    3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
    1 cup fat-free egg substitute
    3/4 cup light sour cream
    2 medium plum tomato(es), seeded and chopped


    Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square pan and a medium skillet with cooking spray.

    Place oil in skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Stir in peppers and chilies and cook about 1 minute more. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared pan; sprinkle with cheeses

    In a small bowl, whisk together egg substitute and sour cream; pour evenly over cheeses and sprinkle with tomatoes.

    Bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Cut into 6 pieces and serve.

    Flavor Booster: Tart-tasting green tomatillo salsa makes a refreshing topping for the casserole. You’ll find tomatillo salsa in ethnic sections of supermarkets and gourmet food stores.
