Chorizo Tortilla Egg Bake

This is a great dish to reheat and eat through out the week for breakfast.  It can be served with fresh jalapeños, sour cream, your favorite salsa or sliced avocado.

Make adjustment with the ingredients as necessary.  If you don't have enough corn tortillas to cover the three layers, cut up some more.  If you like these types of dishes EXTRA cheesy thrown in more cheese.  You like heat?  Add some more jalapeños.

Maybe vegetarian is not your thing?  Use real chorizo instead.  Just note that you will need to pat dry and try to remove as much oil as possible prior to creating your layers.
