  1. Cook sausages according to package directions; cut into 1/4-inch slices; set aside. In a skillet, saute onion and bell pepper in oil until almost tender. Stir in garlic and chili pepper; cook for 1 additional minute. Add sausage and chilies; set aside. In a bowl, combine cheeses, green onion and cilantro.
  2. In a greased, 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish, sprinkle one third of tortilla chips. Follow with one-half of the sausage mixture and one-half of the cheese mixture; repeat. In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper sauce; pour over layered ingredients. Sprinkle with remaining tortilla chips.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

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 ...

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 chile...

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" matter how much your mouth begs to just dip in!!...

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 h...

This is a great recipe. I couldn't find a Johnsonville turkey breakfast sausage so used another brand of turkey breakfast sausage and it was great!

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 enjoyed this recipe made with Johnsonville breakfast sausage. Like other cooks, I halved the recipe as it's just the two of us, however, unlike others that found it too loose, we found that m...

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 ...

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