Egg and Chili Casserole

Egg and Chili Casserole

Last week I skipped my regular Monday Cooking Through My Collection post, but today I am back with a great recipe that works for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

This recipe comes from the Sunset Mexican Cookbook.

I will say that I did not follow the recipe for this one. I adapted it. A recipe that was classic and contemporary in 1969 may not be quite so classic and contemporary in 2015. :-)

I love the old Sunset cookbooks that many of our moms and grandmas had. They are older recipes, but many of them are still great for today. I have picked up quite a few of the old Sunset Cookbooks used and I love them. Sometimes I follow the recipes exactly, but most of the time I adapt them or use them as inspiration for trying new things.

Egg and Chili Casserole_

This recipe for egg and chili casserole is a pretty basic Mexican oven omelet, but with corn tortillas added. I make oven omelet type meals all the time, so my family liked that the tortillas in this changed it up a little.

The original recipe was meatless, but I thought my family would enjoy it with some sausage added. And we did. The sausage was great in it.

I love this recipe because it would make a great breakfast, especially for the weekends, but it also makes a great breakfast for dinner.

This makes a large pan, so if you have a smaller family you might want to half the recipe and make it in an 8×8 pan.

  1. I do enjoy green chili’s in my eggs as well as sausage :-) This looks like a great recipe to try. Only an 8×8 or smaller since my husband is not into baked omelets or casseroles like I am.
