  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 7 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed (20 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 10 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  • 2 cans (10 ounces each) green enchilada sauce
  • Optional toppings: Chopped red onion, chopped sweet red pepper and chopped fresh cilantro


  1. In a large skillet, cook and crumble the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon; discard drippings.
  2. In same pan, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute the potatoes until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in seasonings, chiles, sausage and 1/2 cup cheese.
  3. Place 1/2 cup filling on each tortilla; roll up and place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, seam side down. Top with sauce. Refrigerate, covered, several hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°. Remove enchiladas from the refrigerator while oven heats. Bake, covered, 30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 cups cheese. Bake, uncovered, until lightly browned and heated through, an additional 10-15 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.
