hatch an enchilada fritatta (variation)

it's hatch chile season and my friend, darlene over at honey girl kitchen, entered her unique recipe "hatch an enchilada fritatta" (clever name, right!?) into central market's hatch chile recipe contest. this morning i cooked a variation of her fritatta (since i didn't have all the ingredients). it was, i must say, delicious. thanks to darlene, of course.

6 Eggs
2 tablespoons 2% milk
couple of handfuls of corn tortilla chips
1 tablespoon butter
7oz canned Hatch Diced Green Chiles
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cube of chicken bouillon crumbled
4 sausage patties, crumbled (optional)
¼ tsp pepper
2 slices of provolone cheese
2 slices of mozzarella cheese

Garnish: Sliced avocado

Wisk eggs & milk till mixture is light yellow, set aside. Add butter to pan, sauté onion, garlic, chicken bouillon, sausage, pepper & green chilies, for about 3 minutes. Add tortilla chips and egg mixture to the sauté, coat all ingredients with egg. Once egg on edges is visibly cooked (about 3 minutes) but runny on top, top with cheese slices, cook on low for 3 more minutes. Put the pan in the broiler for 5 minutes or till egg is set.

Cut into wedges & garnish. Can be served warm, room temperature or cold.

Note: a nonstick pan works best
