Easy, hearty Breakfast Enchiladas stuffed with your favorite breakfast ingredients then smothered with intoxicatingly delicious Creamy Salsa Sauce! These enchiladas are totally customizable, perfect for your leftover holiday ham AND you can assemble the night before and bake the next day. but most importantly, they are lick your plate gooooood!
I am not really a breakfast food type of person unless its special occasion breakfasts like Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast and Cream Cheese Stuffed Banana Bread Coffee Cake. Otherwise, I’d rather greet the morning by devouring leftovers. Even as a little girl, I’d skip the cereal and oatmeal and dive mouth first into leftover Waikiki Meatballs, Roast or Chicken Divan. Savory food is my happy place. And savory, hearty, cheesy, Mexican food – better yet – enchiladas for breakfast – is my happier place! I think these Breakfast Enchiladas will make you and your family very happy too.
These Breakfast Enchiladas are a fabulous assemble ahead casserole, perfect for this upcoming holiday week, and doubly perfect because you can use up some of your leftover ham. And even though my Brown Sugar Glazed Ham and Baked Ham with Cider Maple Glaze are incredible, you will likely have leftovers. And hopefully enough leftovers for both these Breakfast Enchiladas and my White Bean Ham Tortellini Soup that’s out of this world. So ration accordingly. Or buy more ham.
I chose to stuff my breakfast enchiladas with ham, Pepper Jack and Sharp cheeses, bell peppers, homemade salsa, green onions and tater tots but you can swap out the ham for bacon, swap out tater tots for hash browns, etc., – the possibilities are endless! As long as you keep the cheese and salsa, you really can’t go wrong. And if you choose tater tots, you will be so, so right…
The tater tots selection was inspired by my recent California Carne Asada Burrito at Bull Taco that was overflowing with tater tots instead of the typical French Fries – incredible. The tater tots stay crispier than fries or hash browns, so I highly recommend them – and it gives you the excuse to buy tater tots! I think its been over a decade since I baked up a package of those happy little morsels. Loooong overdue.
You will want to drink this Creamy Salsa Sauce, but try and resist because it gets even more delish when its cradling enchiladas…
That gets baked until oozy, bubbly, golden perfection.
Now all that’s left to do is top these Breakfast Enchiladas with your favorite garnishes – tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, sour cream, etc.
And dig in – any time of day…breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Breakfast Enchiladas, so you devour satisfyingly delicious cheesy Mexican food for breakfast. happy. day. and Happy Merry Christmas Eve!!!
