Vegetarian Mexican Breakfast Casserole

Do you have company coming or another reason to feed a crowd (or is your family the crowd)? This Mexican Breakfast Casserole is easy to pull together with whole foods and bakes up to a delicious breakfast, brunch, or even breakfast-for-dinner. My family likes it with salsa and Tabasco on the side. We love having breakfast for dinner, and this is a nice, hearty casserole that fills us up.

    If you have leftovers, they're easy to reheat and serve in a tortilla for a morning breakfast burrito. That's also a way to stretch out the main casserole if you're feeding more than 8 people. Enjoy!
