TEX MEX BREAKFAST ENCHILADAS


 I have made a couple yummy breakfast casseroles for you all here before. The Breakfast and Brunch Egg Bake and Cheesy Southwestern Breakfast Casserole. These are perfect for a brunch, holiday mornings, company or just because you love breakfast casseroles. However, I must say this is my FAVORITE! The Tex Mex style and bubbly cheese sauce made for a great mix of flavors! This would definitely be a company and family pleaser and made for suburb leftovers. 
Yum  



Doesn't it look scrumptious!! 


What you'll need for the enchiladas

What you'll need for the cheese sauce

TEX MEX BREAKFAST ENCHILADAS
Ingredients 
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
12 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 jar salsa verde
12 (6 inch) tortillas 
1 1/2 cups shredded Colby jack cheese
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
Cheese Sauce (see below)
Toppings like cherry tomatoes, chopped parsley and cilantro 

Directions 
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, melt butter and sauté red pepper and onion until soft. Stir together the eggs, salt and pepper, add to skillet and scrambled until fluffy. Now assemble tortillas. Place 1-2 Tablespoons salsa verda on each tortilla, then add egg and some of the Mexican blend cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in a 9x13 greased baking pan. Prepare cheese sauce* and add over the top of tortillas. Top with the Colby jack cheese and bake 30 minutes until browned and bubbly. (I turned the broiler on and browned a little more for a pretty topping)

*Cheese Sauce Ingredients 
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour 
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups Mexican or Colby jack shredded cheese
1 (4.5 oz) can chopped green chilies

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium, whisk in the flour until smooth.. Slowly add in milk, whisking constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in cheese green chilies and salt until smooth. Pour immediately on top of the tortillas before baking.
