Breakfast Enchilada Casserole

This Breakfast Enchilada Casserole is everything you love about enchiladas and breakfast casseroles in one recipe! Layers of corn tortillas, eggs, sausage, bacon, green chili sauce, sour cream, and lots of cheese!

I tend to put a Mexican spin on a lot of recipes, and this breakfast casserole is no exception! If you like the flavors in this casserole, try breakfast burritos, chorizo and eggs, and breakfast tacos.

Easy Breakfast Enchilada Casserole

Hey guys! I’m Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road back with another delicious recipe. We love enchiladas and we love breakfast, so for this recipe, I’ve married the two to create this Breakfast Enchilada Casserole!

One of our favorite meals of all time is this Chicken Enchilada Casserole. I thought it would be fun to do a play on that recipe, but for breakfast. As luck would have it, this Breakfast Enchilada Casserole turned out even more amazing than I expected.

This Casserole is super creamy, a little spicy and just all around delicious! It’s perfect for any meal of the day, from breakfast to dinner, and requires very little effort (which is my favorite thing!).

The layer method for this Breakfast Enchilada Casserole is the same as the chicken one, and the flavors are very similar, only instead of chicken, you’re using scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage!

I added some tater tots too, because what’s a breakfast casserole without tater tots? Of course there’s lots of cheese, and a creamy green chile enchilada sauce to top it off.

How to layer

It may sound like a lot of steps, but trust me.. All of these are really, really easy steps. First, cook the elements of the casserole: Scrambled eggs with salsa, bacon, sausage, tater tots. Combine the green chile enchilada sauce with some sour cream.

Then layer it all together in this order:

  • Creamy green chile enchilada sauce (we like Las Palmas or El Paso)
  • Tortillas (broken to fit the casserole dish)
  • Scrambled eggs mixed with salsa
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Tater tots
  • Cheese

And then repeat! Add each of these layers two more times to complete your casserole, finishing with a layer of tortillas, then sauce, then cheese. Top with reserved crumbled bacon, if you like!

Bake at 350° for 40 minutes covered with nonstick foil, then uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes (or until cheese is bubbly). And there you have it! Mouthwatering breakfast enchilada casserole.

Great for making ahead/freezing

The good news is that this breakfast casserole can be made ahead a couple days, or even a month in advance!

Assemble the casserole like usual and cover with nonstick foil. You can then keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month before baking.

To cook your frozen casserole: Let the casserole thaw until it reaches room temperature, then follow the cooking instructions as previously instructed.

You can store leftovers in the fridge for up to a week, just make sure to keep it in a tight tupperware container.

  • 9 eggs
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c salsa
  • 15 oz can green chile enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 12-16 corn tortillas
  • 2 dozen tater tots baked
  • 8 oz sausage cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 6 slices bacon cooked, drained, and crumbled (1-2 TB reserved for topping)
  • 2 1/2 c shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1 TB chives sliced, for garnish


  • Whisk together eggs, milk and salt. Cook in a buttered skillet on medium heat, stirring often, until eggs are cooked through (not browned). Stir in 1 cup salsa. Set aside.
  • Stir together green chile enchilada sauce and ½ cup sour cream. Set aside.
  • In an 11"x7" or 13"x9" baking dish, pour a thin layer of the enchilada/sour cream sauce. Layer with tortillas, breaking to fit as necessary to form a single layer. Spoon a third of the egg mixture over the tortillas, then a third of the bacon, sausage, and tater tots, a third of the shredded cheese and a third of the remaining enchilada sauce. Repeat with two more layers, finishing with a layer of tortillas, then sauce, then cheese. Top with reserved crumbled bacon, if desired.
  • Cover baking dish with nonstick foil. If you don't have nonstick foil, stick several toothpicks into the casserole to keep the foil from touching the cheese. Casserole can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or frozen for up to 1 month before baking.
  • Bake, covered, for about 40 minutes in a pre-heated 350 degree oven. Remove foil and bake 10 minutes more, or until cheese is completely melted.
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving.

  1. 11 x 7 or 13 x 9. This casserole actually fits either pan? For that matter, what about a 9 x 9. Its bigger than the 11 x 7.

    1. I haven’t made it in a 9×9. You probably wouldn’t need as much of the ingredients & it would need to cook longer. Hope that helps. Hope you like!

      1. actually it doesn’t help. Sorry. Your instructions (#3) says to use either a 11 x 7 or a 13 x 9 pan. So all of this will fit in either pan. Doesn’t make sense. And if I doesn’t need as much in the 9 x 9 pan, then is sure as heck will not fit in the 11 x 7 pan. Is the 11 x 7 pan a typo?

        1. The 9×9 is a small square, so the casserole will be a lot thicker and will need to cook a little longer. I have not made it in a 9×9, so I don’t know the exact time. The 13×9 is slightly longer and wider than the 11×7, so it won’t be as thick, but will fit just fine in either of those.

  2. 5 stars
    Sure sounds good. I was wondering can this be frozen after cooking, then reheat in the microwave after thawed?

  3. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious! I love prepping these and having a couple in the freezer so I don’t have to cook breakfast on the weekends! WINNING!

  4. 5 stars
    Awesome! I used a whole pound of sausage, a package of bacon, extra tots and extra sauce. This is the BEST breakfast casserole I’ve ever made! Thank you for this delicious recipe 🙂
