Breakfast Enchiladas

Hector Manuel Sanchez


  • 1 pound hot ground pork sausage

  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

  • 4 thinly sliced green onions

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 14 large eggs, beaten

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  • Cheese Sauce

  • Vegetable cooking spray

  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeños

  • Halved grape tomatoes for garnish

  • Sliced green onions for garnish

  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Remove from pan; drain well, pressing between paper towels.

  2. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add green onions and cilantro, and sauté 1 minute. Add eggs, salt, and pepper, and cook, without stirring, until eggs begin to set on bottom. Draw a spatula across bottom of pan to form large curds. Continue to cook until eggs are thickened but still moist; do not stir constantly. Remove from heat, and gently fold in 1 ½ cups Cheese Sauce and sausage.

  3. Spoon about ⅓ cup egg mixture down the center of each flour tortilla; roll up. Place, seam side down, in a lightly greased 13- x- 9-inch baking dish. Pour remaining Cheese Sauce evenly over tortillas; sprinkle evenly with Monterey Jack cheese.

  4. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Serve with desired toppings.


Prepare half the cheese sauce recipe if you prefer a lighter breakfast. Make It Ahead: Prepare the recipe, without baking, and refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes; bake as directed.
