festive breakfast casserole

This can be made the night before and then cooked in the morning, and that is a huge help when we have company. It must refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours, so keep that in mind. Uses picante or salsa, as those of us in Texas love our Pace. The rest of you will have to use your favorite picante sauce or chunky salsa. :)
