Thank you both. I love to make breakfast casseroles whenever I have weekend company. They are so easy to put together and just take out of the fridge in the morning and put in the oven. Add some fresh fruit and you have a great breakfast.

You can further reduce the numbers per serving by using reduced fat jack cheese, and egg substitute if you like.
I use white corn tortilla chips and 2% milk.
If you want to kick the "heat " up a notch, use pepper jack cheese.
This is good topped with a good fresh tomato salsa too.
