  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350° F and spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In a medium bowl whisk the eggs and salt. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and add the egg mixture. Cook until almost firm.
  • 3
    While the eggs are cooking, brown the chorizo and red bell pepper in a large skillet, crumbling the chorizo as you cook it. Cook until brown. Remove mixture to a separate plate with a slotted spoon and set aside. Drain drippings leaving about 1 tablespoon in the pan.
  • 4
    Add the hash browns to the pan and cook according to package directions. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • 5
    To assemble the enchiladas, fill the tortillas evenly with the eggs, chorizo mixture, hashbrowns, and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese. Roll tightly and place seam down in the prepared dish.
  • 6
    In a small bowl add the enchiladas sauce and cream. Whisk to combine. Pour over the enchiladas making sure to cover all of them. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil after 20 minutes so the cheese can melt and brown.
  • 7
    Top with the bacon and other desired toppings such as sour cream, green onions, or salsa.

Expert Tips

  • When dicing the red bell pepper reserve about 1/3 cup for the top as garnish. It’s pretty and adds a nice crunch.
  • Bacon in this dish adds a lot of flavor. Don’t skip it!
