Colorado Chile- Cheese Scrambled Eggs

When chile season is going in Colorado. Most of us like to green chiles, of varying degree of hotness to our dishes. I love to make cheese scrambled eggs and add chopped green chiles.... So good.. One of the secrets is frying the bacon first and leaving some of the bacon grease as that is what gives the eggs so much flavor..

4 Large or Extra Large Eggs
4 Tablespoons milk
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Seasoned salt and pepper(Lawrys)
1/2 Anaheim chile cleaned and seeded and chopped(some people like to wear gloves, altho Anaheims are milder) You can use pueblos too but wouldn't use Jalapenos, too strong.
4 strips of bacon

 In a small mixing bowl, mix the eggs and milk and seaoned salt and pepper with a wire wisk. In a 10 inch non- stick skillet, fry bacon until crisp and drain off all but 1 tablespoon fat. Add eggs, chopped green chiles and 1/4 cup of the cheese and stir until soft but set.Sprinkle the other 1/4 cup cheese on top and let it melt down. Serve hot with bacon.  So scrumptious!!
