Instructions

  • Spray a 9 X 13 pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside
  • In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onions until the meat is brown and the onions are cooked.   Add the chili powder stir to combine, and remove from heat. 
  • Layer 1/2 cup of the green chile (or 505 if using) sprinkle on 1/3 cup of the sausage mixture and cover with 1/2 of the cut corn tortilla pieces.  Sprinkle  1 cup of cheese over top.  
  • Repeat step 3 then finished casserole with the last third of the sausage and 1/2 cup of green chile.  Top with 1 cup of cheese. 
  • Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Gently pour over casserole evenly covering the entire dish.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least for 6 hours.  Before baking remove from fridge and let come to room temperature about 1 hour. 
  • Bake in  350 degree preheated oven for 80 minutes.   Cover with foil the last 30 minutes to prevent the casserole from becoming over browned.  
  • Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
