Egg Enchiladas

A couple of months ago Matt and I went to one of our favorite local places called Grumpy's and had some Egg Enchiladas. They were SO SO good. I decided to re-create them for breakfast for our anniversary last week. I think they're a really good match for the one's at Grumpys. I will be making them many more times!

Egg Enchiladas

6 corn tortillas
8 eggs, scrambled
1 c cheddar cheese, grated
Kerstin's Ranchero Sauce (recipe below) (Ranchero Sauce is like a combination of salsa and enchilada sauce)

Preheat oven to 350. Put tortillas in a paper towel in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften. Roll some of the scrambled eggs into the tortillas and put side by side in a small casserole pan. Once they're all rolled, top with ranchero sauce and cheese and bake until bubbly (about 15 minutes). I served this with hashbrowns, bacon and fruit.

Ranchero Sauce

2 T olive oil
1/2 c diced yellow onion
1/2 c diced multi-colored bell peppers
4 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t cumin
1-2 t chili powder (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 can rotel
2 c vegetable broth
1 small can tomato paste

Saute the onion, peppers and garlic in olive oil. When the veggies are soft add the cumin and chili powder to taste. Add can of rotel and let the mixture simmer for a couple of minutes. Add vegetable broth and let it all simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and let the mixture simmer until thick and creamy. Taste and add garlic powder, salt, cumin, or chili powder to your liking.
