Mexican Breakfast Casserole with Hash Brown Top – A Hash Brown Casserole with a crusty potato top, and fluffy layers of eggs, cheese, tortilla, and peppers.


  • 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 cup shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 packet Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup crema (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a large 9 X 13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  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.
  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.
  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.

    This was really tasty. It just needed black pepper, a bit more salt and one more can of chillies. Perhaps some cheese mixed in with the hash browns??

    Made this twice for large groups and loved it!  So much easier to put together and slice and serve than a traditional bread based breakfast casserole.  A very small amount leftover, I cut into little squares and they reheated perfectly.  Did not mix the taco seasoning in with the potatoes, instead added Johnny’s seasoning salt and it still gave it nice color and flavor, the chiles, red pepper, onion and fresh salsa I served with gave it plenty of Tex-Mex zing.  Thanks for yet another great recipe Sommer!

    Great Mexican casserole! I’m a big fan of Mexican food – this one with cheese and eggs is so tempting than the usual breakfast with just vegetables. I’m gonna try it right now. I’m sure it’s going to be awesome.
