Eggs Ole'

Thursday, March 31, 2011

This recipe is courtesy of the wonderfuly talented Lea Ann over at Mangos, Chili and Z.  Lea Ann is a big fan of Southwest cooking and always has great recipes to share. She is my "go-to" source for Southwest/Mexican flare.  When I saw this recipe on her blog I knew I had to make it ASAP.  I mean, what could be better than a Mexican quiche covered in Velveeta dip??? 

OMG - this was fantastic!!  We loved this.   We ate this for dinner, and I had make myself stop eating it.  This was my first time cooking with chorizo and it turns out I really like it.  I cooked the chorizo the night before; so it only took a few minutes to assemle the casserole after work.  Dinner was on the table in no time.  We just ate some chips with it, but next time I will serve it with some refried beans or black beans and rice.  It's also not a bad idea to make extra Velveeta dip to go with the chips.  I'm just saying.... I HIGHLY recommend this!  Thanks for so much for sharing Lea Ann!!

Eggs Ole’
slightly adapted from Mangos, Chili and Z
(Printable Recipe)

1 dozen corn tortillas
cooking spray
1 lb chorizo
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup Monterey jack cheese
16 eggs (I used 10 eggs and 1 1/2 cups Egg Beaters)
12 oz salsa
1 cup sour cream (I used light)

For the sauce:
12 oz Velveeta (I used 2%)
8 oz salsa

Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for 30-60 seconds, until soft. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Line bottom and about an inch up the side of large Pyrex dish with tortillas. Cook chorizo and drain; spread over tortillas. Spread cheeses over chorizo. Mix eggs, sour cream and salsa together; pour over cheese and bake at 350 for 30 – 45 minutes or until set.

For the sauce, combine Velveeta and salsa in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat in 30 second intervals until melted.  Pour sauce over individual pieces of the eggs ole'.

Servings: 12

  3. Stephanie, thanks so much for the kind compliments and the shout out. I agree on making additional servings of that sauce. It's really really good. I really like your idea of steam softening the tortillas and that's exactly what I'm going to do next time. Hugs and again thanks.
