I don’t know about you, but I love morning food, especially when it’s in the form of a Fiesta casserole. This meal has everything I love about breakfast: eggs, cheese, carbs of some sort, and a delectable spice blend.
You’ll be addicted after only one bite! This breakfast bake is flavorful and filling. Cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and garlic… Finish with sour cream, salsa, and your favorite garnishes, and you’ve got yourself a feast fit for a king.
This Fiesta casserole is not only tasty, but it’s also really simple to whip together at the last minute. This is one full meal you won’t have to get up extra early to make thanks to a few shortcuts like utilizing premade biscuits and frozen vegetables.
Begin by cutting the chilled biscuits into quarters and equally placing them in the bottom of the casserole dish. Cornbread biscuits are called for in the recipe, but they can be difficult to come by in a can. Regular buttermilk biscuits will suffice.
Pour the frozen vegetables over the biscuits, then top with not one, but two types of cheese. Then, in a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and spices, and pour the mixture over everything. Finish with a salsa layer and bake for 35 minutes.
My family loved adding cilantro, sour cream, and extra salsa to this casserole. Feel free to experiment with various toppings! This is a one-morning dish that will be a hit with the whole family. Take a look at the recipe below!
