In our women's group, we take turns making brunch. I was tired of the same casseroles so I invented this Mexican-style bake. The recipe requests keep coming. —Julia Huntington, Cheyenne, WY

Ingredients

  • 3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 12 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Place 2 cups cheese, ham, green pepper, onion and tomato in a large bowl; toss to combine. Place 1/2 cup mixture off center on each tortilla. Roll up and place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, seam side down.
In another bowl, whisk eggs, cream, flour and seasonings until blended; pour over enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; add toppings.
Bake, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and a knife inserted in egg portion comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked casserole. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Cover casserole with foil; bake as directed, increasing uncovered time to 25-35 minutes or until cheese is melted and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.

"Every easy, l couldn't use all the filling so l'll add it to an omelet. About a generous enough 1/2 cup left. It needs a little spivey hot sauce, tasty."
