  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch pie plate.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in sausage. Cook and stir until sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  3. Place four tortillas in prepared pie plate, overlapping and extending 1/2-inch beyond rim; place remaining tortilla in center. Layer sausage, Monterey Jack cheese, Cheddar cheese, and green chilies over tortillas. Combine eggs, heavy whipping cream, ricotta cheese, and chili powder in a bowl; slowly pour egg mixture into pie plate.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until center is set and puffed, about 45 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro and cut into wedges.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Enjoyed this... added spinach, used leftover homemade chorizo and leftover red bell peppers

Very good recipe. I'm wheat free, and I liked the corn tortilla crust. The tortillas need a spray of oil or brush of butter for the exposed pieces though. I subbed chorizo for the pork and on...

I also used chorizo and reduced each cheese by 1/2. I wouldn't say it was delicious, but it was good.

I doubled the recipe and used an emu egg In lieu of 12 chicken eggs. The doubled recipe fit nicely in a 9x13 baking dish. I used 9 corn tortillas to line the dish and doubled the ingredients. ...

Very Good! I had some leftover tortilla shells so I search for a good recipe to use them. Very Pleased. Enjoyed them with some salsa

My kids love this recipe. Works great for my gluten-free eater as well. Everyone is happy!

Very tasty! Instead of the cilantro, chili powder and green chilis, I used 1/2 jar of sala and cut up small yellow, orange and red peppers. I also substituted parmesan cheese over the top, but...
