Breakfast for Dinner: 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!
7 flour tortillas
9 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons of taco seasoning
2 teaspoons canned green chiles
3 green onions, sliced
salt and pepper ( to taste )
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup of monterey cheese
1 can enchilada sauce
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 avocado, diced
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile in a skillet heat 2 tablespoons of butter.
2) In a large bowl whisk eggs, milk, taco seasoning, green chilies, onions, pepper and salt.
3) Place egg mixture in the skillet with melted butter. When eggs are almost – cooked through add half a cup of cheese.
4) When eggs are cooked through place eggs into the tortillas and roll them and place in a baking dish. Pour sauce over the rolled tortillas, add cheese and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes. Place tomatoes and avocados on top.
*Note – you can add sour cream and cilantro as toppings.

Now I’m having that DOH moment!!! These look awesome.
Right? Such a great idea!
I like breakfast food anytime and this would sure work well for my supper.
I’d imagine you and Bev would add something wonderful from the grill, too! Yum!
I’m so honored you made this!! Yay.
It was great! Dino reheated some in the oven for lunch today and said they were even better leftover!
