Deb's Tortilla Egg Casserole
12 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1 lb. bulk sausage
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2/3 cup chopped green onions
1 can black olives, quartered
1 7oz. can diced green chiles
2 cups grated Jalapeno Monterey Jack cheese
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup milk
2 t chili powder
1 t black pepper
1/2 t salt
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown the sausage with the diced onions. Drain off the fat. Cut the tortillas into 1/8 triangles (cut each in half, quartered, eighths).
Scramble the eggs with the cottage cheese, milk, chili power, pepper and salt.
Lightly grease a 13"x9" baking dish (non-stick spray is fine). Place a layer of the tortilla triangles in the bottom of the baking dish. Evenly sprinkle half of the sausage and onion mixture over the tortilla layer. Sprinkle half of the green onions, olives, green chiles over the sausage. Layer half of the jack and cheddar cheese. Ladle about half of the egg and cottage cheese mixture evenly over the cheese. Repeat the layering process with the tortillas but keep back some of the egg mixture and the cheese for the final layer.
Add one more layer of tortillas with a light sprinkling remaining cheese and ladling the last of the egg and cottage cheese to moisten the tortillas.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. You can make this the night before but not bake it. Also, it reheats very nicely. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
