    I was looking for an easy breakfast recipe with a southwest flair, and I found this one. My husband liked it so much that he asked I make it again this weekend! The only thing I did differently was actually by accident. When I started making the dish, I realized that the recipe called for refrigerated shredded hash browns, and I had purchased the frozen. I decided to go ahead and use them anyway. The bag was 30 oz. as opposed to 20 oz. refrigerated, but I still used the whole bag. I set them on the counter while cooking the chorizo so they could thaw a bit. I cooked it longer, about 15 additional minutes, and it turned out perfectly! As per my husband's request, I will be making it again this weekend!

    OMG is this good! The only thing I changed was the sausage - I used Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage, which worked great. It turned out perfect with the hashbrowns nice and brown and crunchy on the outside. The ONLY breakfast casserole I will make from now on.

    Mine came out too soupy. I didn't really care for this dish.

    This is a very good recipe. I did a couple tweaks because of what I had on hand, like pepperjack in place of the mexican blend cheese and homemade salsa for jarred. Nothing major. I also used chorizo, since it gave that as an option in place of plain sausage. It was still missing zing for us. It says salt to taste and even though other items have a lot of flavor, the potatoes are bland and really need a good amount. I also added a couple jalapenos to the leftovers and that made the dish. Of course, if you don't like spicy foods like us, you will probably love it as written. :)
