Eggs Ole' and Easy Chile Salsa

Our friends Kevin and Jennifer came back to spend the night and have fun 
this weekend.  This morning for breakfast I made them Eggs Ole'!  I first 
saw this recipe over at Plain Chicken's blog.  I just love her blog and knew 
right away that my friends would love it too and they really did!  All through 
breakfast I kept hearing "oh my gosh, this is so good" and that made me 
really, really happy!  

I mean what could be better than a Mexican breakfast casserole covered in 
queso dip?  I know........right?

Eggs Ole'
adapted from Plain Chicken

12 corn tortillas
1 lb. lite breakfast sausage (or chorizo)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
16 eggs (or 10 eggs and 1 1/2 cups eggbeaters)
12 ounces salsa verde (or your favorite)
1 cup light sour cream

Queso dip

16 ounces 2% Velveeta
10 ounces Salsa Verde (or your favorite)

Microwave tortillas in a damp paper towel until soft, about 30 to 60 seconds.
Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray and line the bottom and up the 
sides with the corn tortillas.  Cook the sausage and drain; spread over tortillas 
and top with cheeses.  Mix eggs, sour cream and salsa together and pour over 

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 45 minutes or until set.

Queso dip

Combine velveeta and salsa in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 30 
seconds at a time until melted and stir.  Top your individual serving of Eggs 
Ole' with dip.

Jimmy and Kevin were elbowing each other to get the first piece.  Those 
guys are crazy!

For the salsa in this recipe I used Marcella Valladolid's Easy Chili Salsa.  
I made it for the first time last week and we liked it so much I have made 
it 4 times since then.  It was fantastic mixed with the Velveeta for the queso 
dip.  We will be making it for more than just breakfast!

If you've got company coming or just need a great weekend breakfast..
this is freaking fantastic!!  Try it!  I think you'll love it as much as we did!!
