  • cooking spray

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 5 cups shredded hash brown potatoes

  • 3 cups diced ham

  • 2 cups shredded taco-flavored cheese

  • 1 (7 ounce) can diced green chile peppers

  • 8 large eggs

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning mix, or more to taste

  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

  2. Spray a small pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat; stir in onion. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.

  3. Transfer onions to a large bowl and mix in hash browns, ham, taco-flavored cheese, and chile peppers. Layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.

  4. Whisk eggs, milk, sour cream, and taco seasoning together in a bowl. Pour on top of the hash brown layer.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 60 minutes; check every 5 minutes toward the end.

  6. Remove from the oven and spread Mexican cheese on top. Return to the oven and bake until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Let casserole stand for 5 minutes to set before serving.
