Breakfast Mexican Lasagna with Tots

This recipe is brought to you by Old El Paso

This time of year, it is common for me to have guests sleeping over, and I like to serve them creative breakfasts. The only problem is making eggs or omelets to order can be stressful, and everyone doesn't get to eat at the same time. That’s why I love making breakfast bakes, and this Mexican lasagna breakfast is going to be in heavy rotation this season.

These are super versatile and can be made with a variety of meats or veggies, but I kept it simple this time with only chorizo, eggs, and lots of cheese. The tater tots on top add a nice crispy layer to the dish and take your ordinary Mexican lasagna to the next level!
Start with some enchilada sauce and a tortilla, and just build it up from there. It's nice finding a pan that perfectly fits the tortilas too. Scroll to the bottom for a video of the whole process. Lots of cheese, beaten eggs, and chorizo. The tots go on at the very end so they can get crispy in the oven. Top with pico and sour cream before serving. If you slept over your friends and got this placed in front of you in the morning with a big coffee, how excited would you be!?! The flavors are great in this and the layers are cheesy and delicious. The tots on top are what really make it amazing. Check out the video for the whole process:
