There’s no doubt that breakfast is the most important meal of the day so obviously you want to make sure it’s good! And these Healthy Breakfast Enchiladas do not disappoint either….ohhh boy they sure don’t. They’re cheesy, spicy and full of tons of flavor and the best part is these enchiladas are a much healthier alternative! I used 6-inch whole wheat tortillas along with lean turkey breakfast sausage then topped everything off with tomatoes, avocado and cilantro.
I mean what could be better than this mouthwatering combination of spicy sausage, eggs, and homemade ranchero sauce all thrown together in a delicious casserole?!
It may seems like a lot of ingredients to throw together on any given morning, but the great thing is this dish can easily be prepped the night before! Simply make your ranchero sauce (or you could use store-bought red enchilada sauce to save some time), fill the tortillas and top with cheese then cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning you can easily just pop these breakfast enchiladas into the oven and have a hearty, delicious breakfast ready in just 20 minutes! This is honestly my favorite way to make this dish and even gives the sauce more time to soak up into the tortillas, but I should warn you: the flavor is INSANE!
Like these breakfast enchiladas are perfect for a weekend brunch to serve a large group of people or you could easily throw these together on Sunday evening to prep your breakfasts for the whole week. Seriously the leftovers might even be better than fresh out of the oven. If you can’t handle a ton of spice, feel free to leave out the jalapeño from the ranchero sauce and substitute your meat with a mild-flavored turkey sausage. Either way I think you’ll love this!
And ohh can we talk about the toppings! The chopped avocado and tomatoes were the perfect addition to these enchiladas along with the green onions and cilantro. Plus it just makes the overall dish that much more appealing if you ask me! This recipe really is easy to make and assemble if you just take a few minutes to prep everything. Trust me they’re worth it!
