  1. PREHEAT oven to 375° F. SPRAY a 10x10x1.5-inch oven-safe casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. SET aside.

POUR egg mixture over layers. TOP with jalapeño slices, remaining cheese, cherry tomato halves, and pepper. COVER with aluminum foil and BAKE for 70 minutes or until egg is cooked through and edges are golden and firm.  REMOVE from oven and LET REST for 10 minutes. SPRINKLE with fresh cilantro, SLICE, and SERVE.
