Breakfast taco casserole

I'm talking about "spring cleaning" your refrigerator in this bloig post. Many of us are guilty of keeping random open containers in our refrigerator for far too long because we only use half the jar and then forget about it. Or we let produce expire because we forget about it until we find it hiding in the crisper drawer two weeks too late.

I read an article by Epicurious titled "11 Things That Have Been in Your Fridge Too Long." Included in the list are several things I usually have on hand: yogurt, salsa, cheese, and eggs. 

So I created a recipe to clear out my refrigerator and use ingredients I've had far too long. I came up with a breakfast taco casserole.

Here's what I cleared from my refrigerator to use in the recipe:

Salsa: Last about 2-4 weeks
Sour cream: Lasts about 3 weeks 
Greek yogurt: Lasts about 1 to 2 weeks
Cooked beans: Last 3-4 days
Cooked meat: Lasts about 3 days
Blocks of cheese: Cheddar, mozzarella, and pepper jack last 4 to 6 weeks max

I included substitution options in italics next to the ingredients because, as I previously mentioned, there are a lot of options for substitutions because I want to help you clean out your refrigerator.

Breakfast taco casserole

Yield: 12 servings

Time: About 90 minutes

  • 1 pound Mexican chorizo (you can substitute with chicken, beef, pork, or omit for vegetarian casserole)
  • 1 yellow onion, small dice (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, small dice (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar salsa (you can substitute with diced or crushed tomatoes)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed (you can substitute with pinto beans or refried beans)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained (you can substitute with frozen corn)
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas, halved
  • 12 ounces (3 cups) cheddar cheese, shredded (you can substitute with pepper jack or omit to make it dairy free)
  • Optional toppings: avocado, cilantro, sour cream, salsa, Greek yogurt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray 9x13-inch baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Heat large skillet over medium heat. Add chorizo and cook until browned, breaking it into smaller pieces as it cooks.

  6. In separate bowl, whisk eggs until well-beaten.
  7. Lay half of the tortillas in even layer on bottom of baking dish. Top with half of sausage mixture, half of egg mixture, and half of cheese. Repeat with remaining tortillas, sausage mixture, eggs, and cheese.
  8. Cover baking dish with foil and bake 45 to 55 minutes or until golden brown and not jiggly. Remove from oven.
  9. Let cool 10 minutes before serving with avocado, cilantro, sour cream, salsa, and whatever else you desire.


  1. I had a stroke at 40 years old and have not been able to work for 2 years with a low probability of ever returning to full-work. I was without income for 18 months until I finally received my employer LTD benefit (less 30% legal fees). I have not been able to keep up with credit card payments for the past years (had no idea Cigna would give me the runaround like they did). However, I received a lump sum back payment plus a monthly recurring payment of 60% of my previous income. I was not sure if I should settle my credit cards at this point. I owed Chase B of A, Discover and Citi. Chase is by far the largest balance of Approx. $20k. I have explored bankruptcy, but I have some income producing real estate assets I cannot protect and even my paid vehicle is above the state limit for exemption. While I was researching credit repair I read good reviews about PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST and decided to cast my burden upon PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. The good news is that they fixed my credit in less than 6 days and cleaned up the negative items from my report including the debt I owed. I don’t know how to appreciate PINNACLE enough. Here is the contact: (323) 406-1225. EMAIL: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM

  2. Lexington is a rip-off; I worked with them for almost 2 years with the aim of qualifying for a mortgage at the end of last year. But my target was not met and with last year gone without any tangible achievement, I lost my confidence in them. I tried every hack in the book but nothing changed. A realtor introduced me to (metronet credit solution) an expert who had been helping his clients. They helped me raise my score to 740; I was able to qualify for a home loan.

  4. I started the year with a bad credit score, lingering debts and derogatory record which affected my ability to finance a new home, including a new car. I tried a few credit restoration firms but all were abortive until I saw a post about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. I reached out to them and surprisingly they helped cleaned-up my derogatory and raised my FICO score to 782 across all three bureaus, within a short period of time I got qualified for a new home, and also purchased my dream car.

  5. After my marriage 3 months ago, I applied for a home loan, so that I and my wife could move to a better apartment, but I got a negative reply, which I was told was as a result of my credit score. When I pulled my score it was below average. I had $15,000 student loan, some credit card debt, charge-off and an eviction. DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION helped me erase all the above negative reports and boosted my score to excellent in less than 7 days. I’m recommending them to any person in need of credit assistance.
