If you follow me on Instagram, you might know I am currently obsessed with breakfast casseroles. Ever since making the quiche and then the breakfast casserole from Make It Paleo 2, I’ve been hooked. Breakfast casseroles are a great way to make an easy meal you can eat throughout the week! I typically make a breakfast casserole on Sunday, and it lasts me until the next Sunday. When you are rushing to get ready in the morning, it can be hard to squeeze in the time to make breakfast. By making this Southwest Breakfast Casserole ahead of time, all you have to do is slice and go! I combined some of my favorite flavors to make this Southwest Breakfast Casserole. Green chilies lend a mild heat that pairs with sweet bell pepper and onion all mixed together with chicken! It is the perfect savory way to start your day.
I’m so excited about the response to my new e-book! I have been talking forever about writing one and now it is here. I can’t wait to make another, but I want your input. For my next ebook, I am going to make all new original recipes. What kind of recipes do you find yourself searching for the most? Special diets such as Whole30, 21 day sugar detox, autoimmune paleo? Weeknight dinners? Cooking for one? Crockpot dinners? Leave me a comment letting me know what you want to see!
