Pretty good. since we have chickens, I used fresh eggs instead of egg beaters. Of course, I added a few jalapenos, and I used the Fiesta blend cheese. I also added chopped onions and green peppers to the 'regular' generic hash brown 'chuck' (not grated) potatoes. (O'Brien potatoes include the onions and peppers).

i liked this recipe! I cut the recipe in half because I was making it for two and didnt want leftovers. I added some extra green chiles that I had left from another recipe and also seasoned my potato/Rotel miixture with some ground pepper and season salt. It turned out great! Mine was spicier, Im sure. I also used mexican blend cheese instead of the colby. Be careful not to add too much cheese like I did, because it doesn't need much.

This was a really easy recipe to make. It turns out well each time I make it. I can substitute different ingredients and easily make variations on it.

We love frittatas in our house and this was quick and easy to make. That being said I wouldn't use the frozen potatoes again. We weren't fond of the texture. I'd rather use fresh potatoes or simply replace them with a different assortment of veggies, like red and green bell peppers to keep with the southwestern flavor of the dish. The big plus for this dish, in my opinion, is the fact that it is a one pan meal. Always makes for easy clean up. I'd definitely make this again. Traditionally my frittatas are "refrigerator clean out" nights, so making one with specific ingredients was a bit of switch. I served this for a Sunday brunch and topped it off with a small spoonful of sour cream and some chives just for plating.

I enjoyed this recipe because it was easy to make and tasted good. However, it didn't "WOW" me. I appreciate that it is a "healthier" recipe but the Egg Beaters weren't quite eggy-tasting enough for me. But, that being said, both my husband and I did like it and agreed that it's a really yummy comfort-food type dish. I also loved that it can be made all in one skillet, making clean-up ever-so-easy! The Ro*Tel and the O'Brien potatoes really make a great taste combo as well. One other thing to note: It took me longer than 7 minutes for my frittata to set. I'd say it took more like15 for me. I watched it very carefully so that it would not over-cook; I don't know if my burner temp is just lower than most or what. But, even though it took me longer to cook, it still tasted very good!
