I love Eggs Benedict but wanted to add a southwestern flair. The chopped chili peppers do not make the sauce hot and spicy but add a distinct flavor. You definitely want them in the sauce. I like this with a Moscato wine.
Also just a note, you can cook the vegetables and keep them warm in the oven while you prepare the sauce and poach the eggs, I set my oven to 170 degrees to keep them warm

If you know someone who loves the southwest flavors, then this recipe is for them! I think it's great for breakfast, but it would be yummy for supper too. I used a 30 oz bag of hash browns in this recipe. The Test Kitchen
