"Nice but maybe better with chorizo and queso fresco instead of cottage cheese."

"This tastes like a combination of a breakfast quiche (sausage & egg) and cheese enchiladas (corn tortilla & cheese). It was yummy though quite fattening even though I did use reduced fat sausage and milk instead of cream. It was good and different but I don't think my husband enjoyed it as much as I did, so I am not sure if I will make it again."

"I made this with half bacon and half sausage (due to different preferences in my work group) and it was very well received!"
