  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Grease a 10x9-inch baking dish. Layer half the tortilla pieces into the bottom of the prepared dish; top with 2 cans green chilies, half the cooked sausage, and half the cheese, respectively. Repeat layering.
  3. Beat eggs, milk, salt, garlic salt, onion salt, black pepper, and cumin together in a bowl; pour over the layers in the baking dish.
  4. Cover baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  5. Remove dish from refrigerator and let warm at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  7. Bake the casserole bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes. Arrange a layer of tomato slices atop the casserole and continue baking until a knife inserted into the middle of the casserole comes out clean, 10 to 15 minutes more. Let casserole cool 10 minutes before cutting.

I made this casserole for Christmas brunch and my family loved it. I substituted two cans of Rotel tomatoes drained instead of the green chilies and used half cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheese.

I made exactly as shown. I had some guys over for brunch. They loved it. I made it the night before. Will do again.

Used chicken sausage, a high fiber tortilla and some lite Mexican blend cheese. This was very good... liked the use of tortillas instead of bread or potatoes
