*Tip:

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

This is pretty darn good, but why mess with a slow cooker when all the ingredients are cooked prior to going into the cooker? I cook everything the day before, put it in the fridge overnight, then layer the next morning in a casserole dish, and then stick it in a 350 oven for 30-40 minutes¿just to heat up.

I don't see many people getting up in the morning to make this breakfast. 3-4 hours in the slow cooker would make it lunch maybe.....
