I'm not kidding, this is the best breakfast I've ever made! I finished this up at about 4 PM and had a huge slice of it. I couldn't help myself. It is so flavorful with the chorizo and the slow cooker helped to keep the eggs moist and tender- it is easy for eggs to dry out but not this one. You will absolutely love it. My family ate almost this entire recipe for dinner one night. It is great for breakfast and dinner. It is easily my new favorite recipe and I think that you will love it too.

With the weather getting colder, the slow cooker has made its way out of storage and back into my kitchen! Woo hoo! I love making soup in my slow cooker, breakfast casseroles, shredded meat and much more. It certainly gets its use in our kitchen.

In my family, I am a little bit of a breakfast expert. I am always trying new things and coming up with new recipes. When we go up north with my family, I often volunteer to bring the breakfast for everyone because it is a meal that I really enjoy cooking. When serving a crowd, a breakfast casserole is an awesome option! I know that you all love egg casseroles because they are some of my most popular recipes on my blog! They are so easy to make and super customizable.

I love all things Mexican (especially my husband and kids- haha! Bad joke!)! We often cook Mexican style foods and when I told my husband that I was making something with chorizo in it, he was super excited. We started cooking with chorizo when we first got married and is one of the things that Troy really likes to make for the family. It does have a lot of grease though so we always drain it really well when cooking with it. Chorizo has a ton of flavor which is why I only added black pepper and garlic powder for spices since chorizo is packed with its own spices.

I love enchiladas so I decided to try to make an enchilada breakfast casserole- we have the seasoned meat, the corn tortillas and the tomatoes. Next, I want to make breakfast enchiladas where the enchiladas are packed with eggs instead of chicken or beef! Yum! I had planned to top this egg bake with cheese but it tasted so awesome without that I skipped it- add the cheese on top at the end if you wish.

I used red and green bell peppers for vegetables in this dish but I also think that it would be great topped with avocado, sauteed onion or packed with any other veggies. Break out your crockpot and throw this meal in for an easy breakfast that the whole family will love. If you want to save time and not cook it in a slow cooker, you can just throw all of the cooked chorizo, peppers and onions along with the rest of the ingredients in a baking dish and cook at 375 degrees until eggs are cooked through- I cook my egg casseroles both ways.

For this recipe, I used Hunt's Petite Diced Tomatoes- No Salt Added,. I LOVE finding no salt added tomatoes and seriously stock up big time when I find them. I use them for everything when cooking and like having no less than 15 cans on hand at any given time. So much better than using a product high in sodium!

I also used PAN Nonstick Spray from Meijer which helped make it a lot easy to scoop the casserole out of the crockpot compared to not using any spray. PAM has a new spray pump product that has 10 calories and 1 gram of fat that is non-stick like the other products. It makes it so that you can control how much you use and you can often use less than using regular butter or oil.
