I found this in a Taste of Home magazine. We love anything Mexican so I was happy to find this recipe for breakfast.

We enjoyed this south-of-the-boarder twist of a traditional breakfast casserole. It had great flavor and the corn and beans were a nice addition. The pork chorizo I used was finely ground and did not separate into crumply bits as it cooked as other sausages do, rather into a paste. It lent tremendous flavor to the dish yet did not give the mouth feel of meat. My husband said he could "taste" but not "feel" the sausage. I'll try again with a different brand. Thanks Tammarie,
