Great Thanks for sharing!! I really liked the ground turkey idea/ but prefer ground chicken to turkey, so I did that, and seasoned just with some mild chili powder and garlic powder, then in the last 15 minutes of cooking I added crushed corn chips ( fritos) and a little more cheese. Tasted like a tamale kinda or an enchilada, we liked it anyway :)

We have never had ground breakfast sausage, so did not know what to expect. It probably depends on the brand you get, but the one we chose had so much rosemary in it it overpowered the dish. If we had known, we would have been better off cooking ground turkey with some added spices. We also halved the dairy in this, so that it wouldn't be overly creamy for us (it was still quite creamy). Guacamole was a good addition for topping.

Totally loved this. This was so easy and so good. I actually used mild Picante sauce and it was just perfect for me( I am a spicey wimp) This went great with our mole sauce My Own Mole and Mexican Grilled Chicken. Made for ZWT8.

Wow! I didn't know what to expect, but I am SO glad I tried it! I used the "hot" breakfast sausage, brown rice, and colby-jack cheese. The only other change I made was to add a can of drained and rinsed black beans. (It still fit perfectly into an 8 x 8 x 2 casserole.)

I made this a while back and completely forgot to review! This is absolutely delicious! The only "picante" I had on hand was corn and black bean and oh my! This was WONDERFUL!!! I used ground turkey sausage and extra sharp cheddar. Also added chopped jalapeno. This is a dish I will be making again often! Thanks Lor! Made for KK's Recipe Tag

I loved this dish. All the ingredients are things I regularly have on hand. I thought I would have to add additional spiced but the sausage and salsa added enough flavor. Very good and it is going in regular rotation. Made for ZWT 5.

I felt early on that I was going to like this recipe since it had my much-loved Tex-Mex thing going for it, but it was an education too. I always use beef in these dishes, but found I really liked the extra zip the ground breakfast sausage brought to the dish. I always serve sour cream on the side, but found I liked the creamy texture it added throughout the dish. I remember looking at the recipe & thinking “I’ll prob add some Mexican corn & black olives to this”, but I found this very good without them. I was reunited w/my Tex-Mex roots & enjoyed a new dish my DH said he’d like to see on our table often. Thx for the reunion!
