Mexican Breakfast Casserole
Prep: 20 min Bake 25 min
1/2 pound sausage
4 eggs scrambled
3 medium potatoes, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 can of green chili sauce
1 cup of cooked pinto beans
2 cups of Mexican cheese
1. Brown the sausage and set aside.
2. Fry the potatoes. When they’re almost done, add the peppers and onions, and fry everything until done. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and fajita seasoning.
3. Spray a medium sized baking dish with cooking spray. Cut the tortillas in half and create a layer on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle in a layer of potato, peppers and onion mixture along with sausage and 1/2 of the pinto beans, then pour uncooked scrambled eggs on top. Ladle on some of the green chili sauce. Sprinkle on some cheese. The depth and width of your pan and your desire will dictate how many layers you can make. But repeat the process at least once more, top of with more remaining pinto beans and tortillas, green chili sauce, and cheese.
