I made this Green Chili Breakfast Bake for dinner one night recently. Who says you can't have breakfast for dinner. There are no rules against it!
The beauty of a breakfast bake like this one is that unless you are feeding a huge family, you should have some leftovers for the following morning!
Like more simple recipes like this one, you can tweak the ingredients to make it your own. Substitute the Mexican Blend Cheese for some Cheddar Cheese or some Pepper Jack Cheese to give it a little more kick. Use some chopped steak instead of the ham. As I always say, use what you got on hand!
If you are not a fan of Green Chilies, try using some diced Bell Peppers. I personally like Orange and Yellow Bell Peppers. Some tell me they can't tell a difference in taste between all the different colors of bell peppers but I can.
Since I always have shredded hashbrowns on hand that's what I use for this breakfast dish. But if you have hashbrown patties on hand then you can do that as well. Simply use enough patties to cover the bottom of the baking dish.
🥄 Bisquick Substitute
If you don't have any Bisquick on hand, you can make your own by combining 1 Cup All Purpose Flour, 1 ½ teaspoons Baking Powder, ½ teaspoon Salt and 1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter (or vegetable oil).
