Ingredients

For Enchiladas

  • 1 tbsp bacon drippings or other cooking fat
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1/2 pepper chopped
  • 1 lbs ground sausage
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 4 oz can of diced jalapeños drained
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 8 to 10 flour tortillas
  • 4 oz pepper jack cheese shredded
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 1/2 cup salsa verde

For Toppings:

  • 1/4 cup tomatoes diced
  • 1/4 red onion minced
  • 2 Scallions diced
  • 1/4 green or red Pepper diced
  • 1 Avocado sliced
  • Cilantro chopped for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.
  • Heat the bacon dripping in a large skillet over medium heat and swirl to coat the pan.
  • Add the onion and pepper and sauté until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add the ground sausage and cook, breaking into small pieces, until browned all over.
  • Drain any excess fat, if needed.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the red pepper flakes and diced jalapeños.
  • Remove the sausage mix from the skillet and set aside.
  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  • In the same skillet, reduce the heat too low.
  • Add the eggs and scramble until almost set. Remove from heat.
  • Spoon a thin layer of the salsa verde over the bottom of a large baking dish.
  • Working one at a time, add the tortillas to the dish, filling with evenly with sausage mix, scrambled eggs, and a sprinkle of black beans.
  • Roll, tucking the edges towards the edge to keep each tortilla from unrolling.
  • Repeat until you have filled the baking dish.
  • Pour the remaining salsa verde over the top of the enchiladas.
  • Sprinkle with pepper jack and cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, until the cheese has melted and tortillas are becoming golden along the edges.
  • Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes before serving with tomatoes, red onion, scallions, diced peppers and sliced avocado.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro, if desired.
  • Serve
