I halved this recipe and served it for dinner with a little sour cream on the side. We thought it was very tasty, and I'd definitely make it again. I used a whole 7 oz can of diced green chiles for the half recipe, and the chips I used were the nacho cheese tortilla chips from Trader Joe's. I used the original breakfast sausage from Johnsonville, and even though it does contain MSG, I did not get a headache or retain water from it---a very happy result! Thanks for a good dinner, Johnsonville!

This comes together really well, & even cut in half! (There's only 3 of us). However!!! You MUST give it plenty of time to "set up" after...no matter how much your mouth begs to just dip in!!! If you serve it too soon it will be all soupy & goopy. Ask me how I know !!! HTH!

So, definitely 5 stars. The flavor was perfect for a true Mexican breakfast. So perfect in fact, that no one added salsa. I made a few alterations -- used 1.5 cans dried green chiles instead of 2 and 1 tsp chili powder. And, instead of fresh cilantro, I used Knorr's dried cube cilantro, which worked great for flavoring and didn't leave little green leafy things in the casserole. The only drawback was the preparation time -- it took a lot of time and I sure hoped the recipe would be worth it. Surprise! It was totally worth it! It set up perfectly w/in the cooking time (and for high altitude that's awesome). The teenagers LOVED it. Thanks, Johnsonville, once again a new family favorite.

This reminds me of something I ate for breakfast in Mexico. While I don't think it is too much work I can't see my family eating it for breakfast, mid day brunch or dinner is more likely. We had it this evening. I prepped everything earlier in the day and refrigerated it until ready to bake. It was very well received, even by a picky 4 yr old. Once again Johnsonville scores well in our house.

This recipe was really good! I halved the recipe because there's only 3 of us here. There is a lot of prep work and it's not easy to just throw together, but it was worth it in the end. Even my 2 year old ate this! I didn't have pepper jack cheese, so I just added 1/2 an jalapeño minced with cheddar. I also added more salt and pepper.

This came out great. I did omit the chiles due to an allergy. It did need a little extra cook time but that may be because of the pan I used. The sausage was a standout in this recipe.

We all enjoyed this recipe! I did have to bake it longer than it originally stated though. It was excellent!

Hearty Brunch! I served with fresh tomatoes and salsa on the side. I do love Johnsonville breakfast links....wished I could have found the spicy ones!
