Ingredients

  • 16 large eggs
  • 3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 4 large Old El Paso™ Flour Tortillas
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4.5 ounce can Old El Paso™ Chopped Green Chiles
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 packet Old El Paso™ Low Sodium Taco Seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup crema (optional)

Instructions

Step 1 Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spray a large 9x13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Step 2 Cut the tortillas in to 1/2 inch by 1 inch strips. Whisk the eggs thoroughly in a large bowl. Then mix in the shredded cheese, chopped bell pepper, chiles, 1 cup chopped green onions, salt and tortillas. Pour the mixture into the baking dish.

Step 3 In a separate bowl, mix the shredded potato with the Old El Paso™ Taco Seasoning. Then drizzle the butter over the top of the potatoes and toss to coat.

Step 4 Sprinkle the shredded potatoes over the egg mixture in an even layer. Then place in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes until the center is puffed up and the hash brown top is crispy. Serve warm, drizzled with crema and sprinkled with green onions if desired.
