Spicy Egg Bake

This family favorite makes a wonderful brunch dish served with muffins and fresh fruit. It's also a great way to use up extra taco meat. Adjust the heat by choosing a hotter or milder salsa. —Michelle Jibben, Springfield, Minnesota

    Pretty frustrating when a recipe is unclear. What is taco meat? I use chicken, ground beef, beans and many other things in my tacos so ?

    Big hit with my kids. For the taco meat I used half ground turkey and half ground beef. Also added a few hash browns. Would also be good with a can of green chilis added. This is a keeper.

    I made this for my Bible study group and they all loved it, my husband loved it and I shared it with some dear friends and they loved it. So, in a nutshell, it is great, I highly recommend it.

    I loved this! I added mushrooms and black olives and used a southwestern flavored egg substitute for most of the eggs. I did end up increasing the cooking time to about 25 mins to make sure it was heated through.
