Scrambled Egg Enchiladas

Author: Canadian Living

Brighten brunch with a taste of the Southwest: tortillas bursting with scrambled eggs, chorizo sausage and mild green chili sauce. If you use cooked chorizo, just dice and go; if using raw chorizo, remove it from the casings and cook, breaking up with a spoon.

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 chorizo sausages cooked and crummbled
  • 4 hot Italian sausages cooked and crummbled
  • 2 potatoes cooked, peeled and diced
  • 8 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • salsa optional
Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3/4 cups light sour cream
  • 2 cans (each 4.5 oz/127 mL) chopped green chiles drained
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper

Method

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté onion, red and green peppers, and garlic until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in sausage and potatoes; cook, stirring, until heated through.

In bowl, beat eggs with 1/4 cup (50 mL) water, salt, hot pepper sauce and pepper; pour over potato mixture. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring, until eggs are almost set but still moist. Stir in cheese.

Spoon one-eighth of the egg mixture along centre of each tortilla; roll up and place, seam side down, in 13- x 9-inch (3 L) gla3/4 baking dish. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.)

Sauce: In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in flour. Whisk in stock, 1/2 cup (125 mL) at a time; cook, stirring, until sauce comes to boil and thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and chilies. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.)

Spread sauce over tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese and red pepper.

Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until hot and bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with salsa (if using).
