3/4 teaspoon salt


1 pound spicy ground pork sausage
12 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk
4 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped, divided

Cheese Sauce

1.  Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; whisk in flour and continuing stirring while cooking for one minute. Increase heat to medium and gradually whisk into milk, stirring constantly for 5 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in cheese, half of chilies and salt.


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.

2.  Crumble sausage into a large skillet. Cook over medium high heat, stirring often until meat is no longer pink. Remove from pan. Set aside.

3.  In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until well combined. Whisk in green onion, cilantro, of half of tomatoes, remaining chopped green chilies, salt and pepper.

4.  Return skillet to stove and melt butter over medium heat. Pour egg mixture into skillet and cook without stirring until eggs began to set on bottom. Draw a spatula across the bottom of the pan to form large curds. Continue to cook and draw spatula across bottom of the pan until the eggs are thickened and cooked through but still moist. Remove from heat and fold into 1 1/2 cups cheese sauce and sausage.

5.  Spoon about 1/3 cup egg mixture down the center of a flour tortilla, roll up, and place steam-side down in prepared baking dish. Repeat for remaining tortillas. Pour remaining cheese sauce evenly over top of rolled tortillas. Sprinkle with 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese and remaining tomatoes.

6.  Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Serve while warm.
