Texas Two-Step Breakfast Casserole

I made some modifications to a typical Southwest breakfast casserole recipe. I love this recipe because I can make it up the night before and bake it in the morning. Egg casseroles can often be a bit dry, but this one comes out moist and delicious every time!

This is a quick and hearty breakfast casserole. We were a bit leery there wouldn't be enough eggs (with all the other goodies packed in here), but it was perfect. It has a Tex-Mex flair to it with the green chilies, onion, and seasoning. When served with a little sour cream and pico it tastes like a breakfast taco. Great for breakfast or brunch, but could be enjoyed for dinner too. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
