Mexican Breakfast Casserole

Do you have a favorite ethnic style of food? Maybe it's Italian? Mexican? German? Chinese? ... perhaps it's American? I don't think I've ever met a Mexican, Latin or Spanish type food I didn't like. I sometimes think I was born into the wrong food culture!

Before our big move, my bloggy friend Evelyn, had posted a recipe for Mexican Breakfast Casserole - and it immediately caught my attention! Of course, I commented on her post ... pinned it ... and made a note to myself to make it as soon as things settled down here in Arizona. 

I changed it up just a little bit by adding Ro-Tel and some hot sauce. We served it with some fresh strawberries ... and the only thing I would do different the next time (because there will be a next time), is to double the recipe and bake it in a 9x13 pan. I really wanted some leftovers for the next day - but we didn't have any leftovers!

I also may try chorizo in place of the bacon one of these times .... seriously, you just can't go wrong with this dish - it is sooooo good! :)
