Brunchiladas + Mimosaritas

Brunchiladas and Mimosaritas // takeamegabite

I love enchiladas. So much so, that I’d like them for breakfast filled with eggs and chorizo. I’m all Dr. Suess about them. Please give them to me topped with salsa verde, out on the town, at the picnic table, for dinner, for breakfast, with leftovers, with newovers, topped with quickly whisked chili powder enchilada sauce, filled with BBQ, topped with gouda, topped with goat cheese. I just want them, ya know?

Brunch Fiesta with Brunchiladas and Mimosaritas / / takeamegabite

So when I realized brunchiladas could be a thing, I knew mimosaritas had to be thing. And these two pair together so well! They’re like Tegan and Sara, Fitz and the Tantrums, breakfast and lunch, mimosas and margaritas.

I suggest you get your fiesta on brunch-style. But beware, if you eat these at your picnic table they just might bring all the boys to the yard, and they only serve 2 or maybe 3. So be prepared for that. And these can be vegetarian so simply! Just exclude the chorizo and live your life. Merry brunchmas!

Brunchiladas and Mimosaritas // takeamegabite

Brunchiladas (serves 2-3)
Sauce adapted from Simply Recipes; Enchiladas inspired by Val So Cal

Ingredients:

enchilada sauce –

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, pressed
  • 3 1/2-5 T chili powder
  • 2 t cumin
  • 1 t coriander
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of cloves
  • 1/4-1/2 t smoked chipotle smoked pepper
  • 1/2 t sugar
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth

enchiladas –

  • 5 tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 T milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup chorizo, crumbled and cooked
  • 1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed

to serve –

  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • 1/2 of an avocado, sliced
  • cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • a big handful of greens
  • red wine vinegar
  • kosher salt
  • hot sauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Make the enchilada sauce by heating the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the clove of garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the spices and sugar and whisk together. Add broth and the flour one teaspoon at a time until thickened. Add salt and pepper and additional spices to taste.
  2. Warm the tortillas in the microwave for a minute for easy rolling. Cook the chorizo, and set aside. Beat the eggs and milk, with salt and pepper until frothy. Cook and scramble eggs in a small greased pan until cooked most the way. Add half of the monterey jack, beans, chorizo and a tablespoon of the enchilada sauce. Finish cooking eggs. Spread a quarter cup of enchilada sauce in a small casserole dish. Divide egg mixture between each tortilla. Roll and place seam-side down in the baking dish. Cover with remaining enchilada sauce and monterey jack cheese. Bake for 12 minutes or until bubbling.
  3. Remove from the oven and cover with crumbled goat cheese, avocado and tomatoes. Toss greens with red wine vinegar and salt. Top the enchiladas. Add hot sauce to taste. Serve with mimosaritas!

They look great, but just one question where do you buy those tortillas? they look good and not the fake kind that I get in Meijer.

Hi Megan, the breakfast enchiladas are just what I am looking for a shower. Can you assemble them the night before and bake the dish in the morning?
Thanks!
