 Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Pork Sausage Roll, thawed


Large eggs

2 cups


2 teaspoons

Ancho chili powder

2 teaspoons


1 teaspoon

Smoked paprika

1 teaspoon

Garlic powder

1 teaspoon

Onion powder

1 teaspoon


1 teaspoon


1/2 teaspoon

Cayenne pepper


Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced


Bell pepper, any color, seeded and diced

1 can

Black beans, drained and rinsed

1 can

Corn, drained


Yellow onion, diced


Jalapenos, deveined, seeded, and minced (optional)


Garlic cloves, minced


Corn tortillas

8 ounces

Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

8 ounces

White cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 cup

Fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)


Ripe avocado, sliced or diced (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

  2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook and crumble sausage until no pink remains. Remove from heat and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.

  3. Spray a 9×13 pan or large oven-safe skillet with non-stick spray.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Whisk thoroughly, then while continuing to whisk, sprinkle in the spices. Keep whisking to prevent the spices from clumping. Combine thoroughly.

  5. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, bell pepper, black beans, corn, onion, jalapenos, and garlic. Toss to combine.

  6. Place 6 tortillas in the bottom of your baking dish or oven-safe skillet, overlapping as needed. Top with 1/3 of the tomato mixture, 1/3 of the cooked sausage, and 1/3 of each cheese. Repeat layers 2 more times beginning with tortillas and ending with cheeses (reserve about ½ cup of cheese for final topping).

  7. Pour egg mixture over the layers.

  8. Bake uncovered for 45-55 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Top with remaining ½ cup cheese, and broil until melted and bubbly, about 2 minutes.

  9. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes to “set”.

  10. Sprinkle with cilantro and avocado if using, slice, and serve.

  11. To Make Ahead:

    Prepare steps 2 through 7 as directed. Refrigerate overnight. Remove casserole from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350° F, then follow steps 8-10.
