Sausage Casserole Recipe

Written on Monday, July 17, 2017 | 10:00:00 AM




Serves : servings 
Preparation time : 25 minutes
Total Time: 4 hour

Ingredients : 
- 1 pound chorizo sausage (you can use sweet Italian sausage, too)
- 8 eggs
- 16 tbsp milk
- 4.5 ounces green chiles (chopped)
- 8 ounces Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (the cheese will be shredded)
- 1 chopped red bell pepper
- 9 tortillas (use 6 inch soft corn tortillas)
- 16 tbsp thick salsa (you can use green tomatillo salsa, too)

Preparation Method :
1) The sausage will be cooked for 6-7 minutes over medium-high heat, in a skillet. Stir from time to time and stop the cooking process when the sausage is brown. Drain and set aside.

2) The eggs will be beaten in a medium bowl. Whisk in milk and chiles, too.

3) 12 tbsp cheese and 2 tbsp bell pepper (chopped) will be reserved. Set aside (you will use them for topping).

4) Use a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Line it with foil (the foil will be folded into thirds). Grease the foil with cooking spray. 3 tortillas will be placed in the bottom of the slow cooker (you might need to tear in order to fully cover the bottom of the slow cooker). Add half of the following ingredients: cooked sausage and remaining bell pepper & cheese. Top with 3 tortillas and repeat the layering (remaining sausage, bell pepper and cheese).  Again, top with 3 tortillas (in order to cover the mixture, tearing might be necessary). The egg mixture will be added over the tortillas.

5) After covering, cook for about 5 hours on low heat (or for about 3 hours on high heat). Stop the cooking process when the center is set (or the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F).

6) The reserved ingredients (Step 3) will be sprinkled over the casserole. After covering again, continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Stop the cooking process when the cheese is melted.

7) The casserole can be served with salsa.

***Tip :
- Sliced Jalapeno chiles could be a great idea when it comes to topping this casserole.

- If you will use flour tortillas, the flavor will be a bit different. I would recommend you to use corn tortillas.
