Eggs, sausage, cheese, crushed chips, and salsa are combined in this easy to make Mexican Breakfast Casserole.
I titled this recipe Mexican Breakfast Casserole, but this is a favorite breakfast for dinner at our house. Yes, it works for breakfast, but it is even better as a breakfast for dinner.
I came up with this recipe recently when I needed to go grocery shopping, but didn’t have to time to make it to the store.
I had to come up with a dinner using the ingredients that I had on hand.
I also had a bag of chips that had gotten crushed. I did not want to throw them out, but I knew they would not get eaten as they were.
I have used crushed chips in a casserole before in my Nacho Tortilla Chip Pie, so I knew crushed chips would work in a casserole.
Since I had plenty of eggs on hand, I decided to give a Mexican breakfast casserole a try with crushed chips.
The end result was delicious!
