Breakfast Enchiladas

Jon and I are huge fans of Mexican food and have a standing tradition of making big, yummy breakfasts on the weekend since we are kind of rushed with work during the week. I came across this recipe for breakfast enchiladas and now Jon wants me to make it every week! They are DELICIOUS! You can even prep the enchiladas the night before so in the morning all you have to do is pop them in the oven. These will definitely be a weekend staple on our menu.

Ingredients
8 tortillas (I used corn but flour would be just as delicious)
9 large eggs
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp milk
2 tsp taco seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp canned green chilies
3 green onions, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
1- 1.5 cup shredded Monterrey Jack or Colby Jack Cheese
1 can red enchilada sauce
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 avocado, sliced

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, taco seasoning, green chilies, onions, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
2. Melt the butter into a large skillet pan and cook the egg mixture. When eggs are almost done, add 1/2 cup cheese and stir to melt
3. Fill tortillas with egg mixture, roll up, and place fold down in a greased baking dish.
4. Once tortillas are filled, top with enchilada sauce and remaining cheese (I did not use the entire can of enchilada sauce... your choice).
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
6. Top with tomatoes and avocado (and any other toppings of your choice) and enjoy!

Those look and sound yummy. I would probably add sausage crumbles to mine, though. Thanks for sharing!

Sounds super yummy!! But I'm afraid to try them and have my hubby wanting them every week too!!! lol I make regular cheesy enchiladas that he is constantly begging me to make like every day! lol

You could make this an enchilada stack instead of taking the time to roll them. You could line your dish with tortillas, add the filling on top, layer another of tortillas and top it with cheese and enchilada sauce. I'm a huge fan of the stacks. They taste great and are so much easier. I think I would add crumbled cooked breakfast sausage too. Yum!

I must never let my husband see this post, Ruthie! He will MAKE me make this for him every morning haha! I think he could have mexican everyday for all three meals and be the happiest person ever. I love mexican, but definitely not as much as him.

I actually am happy you posted this, because I have a feeling I can make someone really happy by fixing this for him on Father's day morning :)

Thanks girl !!

Oh man, my hubby will love these!!! And since he's the morning person out of the two of us, I'll have him whip them up instead ;) Sounds fair, right?

Daisy said...
