Eggs Ole’ with Chorizo

This recipe is courtesy of the wonderfully 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 flair.  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 to 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 assemble 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!!

1 dozen corn tortillas
cooking spray
1 lb chorizo
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup Monterey jack cheese

1 cup sour cream (I used light)

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

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.

  1. 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.
