Breakfast for Dinner: Breakfast Enchiladas

Breakfast Enchiladas

I love breakfast, and I love serving breakfast for dinner. When I saw this post in my feed reader, I immediately put it on the menu for this week.  Breakfast burritos? Check. How had it never occurred to me to combine breakfast with enchiladas? What a fantastic idea! This was a super tasty meal. I used 8 tortillas for this and mozzarella cheese, since I had some left from when I made Individual Pizzas with Cauliflower Crust. I even got to use some of my Homemade Taco Seasoning for these bad boys. I served them with hot sauce and sour cream. I didn’t have any cilantro, so I sprinkled some extra green onion on top.

Also, just a note, I started posting some behind-the-scenes photos over on Instagram. It has been a fun way to give people a sneak peek at what’s going on in my tiny kitchen!
