Breakfast Enchiladas

Ever had a house full of company that you need to feed?  I love having people come and visit! But getting up and preparing breakfast fo several people can be a daunting task.  I thought I would share on of my "go-to" recipes for those mornings.  But don't think you need only serve this to a house full of company for breakfast.  You can prepare this the night before, refrigerate, then bake in the morning!  This works great for breakfast in the middle of the week, too.  You could also serve it for dinner.   The recipe is flexible, so you could use different fillings.  Instead of ham, you could use light sausage or some bacon.  Want to spice it up?  Try using chorizo, adding green chiles, or jalapeno's.  Just use your imagination!


Here are the ingredients you will need: eggs, bell pepper, green onions, low-fat cheese, tortillas (I used whole wheat), evaporated skim milk, flour and salt. You will also need some water.
 
 
Chop up the bell pepper, ham, and green onions.  Add shredded cheese and mix together.
 
 
Place 1/3 cup of the ham mixture down the center of each tortilla; roll up and place seam side down in baking dish.   

 
Whisk together eggs, milk, water, flour and salt. Pour over the filled tortillas. 
 
Sprinkle remaining cheese over enchiladas.  Cover with aluminum foil.  If making ahead of time, you can place in refrigerator at this point.   
 
When ready to bake, do so in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes; uncover, then bake for 10-15 minutes more or until set and cheese is melted.
