Cheesy Breakfast Enchiladas

  • Author: Our Best Bites


This is one of those recipes from a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend kind of thing, that was scrawled by hand who knows how many years ago. And can we all just agree that those are the best recipes?


  • 8 ounces chorizo sausage
  • 2 cups frozen shredded hash browns
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 eggs, whisked together with a splash of water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • 1 7-ounce can green chilies (mild)
  • 1 10-ounce can cream of mushroom soup
  • 8 ounces green enchilada sauce or green salsa
  • 8 12-inch tortillas
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded pepper jack cheese


  1. Over medium heat in a large skillet, crumble the chorizo and cook, stirring frequently, until cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel, reserving the drippings. When drained, add to a medium mixing bowl.
  2. In the same pan (and the same drippings), add the hash browns in a thin layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook for about 7 minutes or until brown and crispy, then flip and cook until the other side is brown and crispy. Remove from pan and add to the cooked sausage.
  3. Return the pan to heat and melt the tablespoon of butter. Add the whisked eggs and scramble. When done, add to the eggs and potatoes and stir to combine.
  4. In a small-ish mixing bowl, whisk together the cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, enchilada sauce, chilies, and green onions. Measure out 1 cup of the sauce and mix it with the egg mixture.
  5. Preheat your oven to 325.
  6. Fill each tortilla with about 1 cup of the egg mixture and roll it securely. Place in a 9×13″ pan. Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbly. Remove from oven and allow to stand for about 5-10 minutes before serving. Makes 8 servings.
