Tortilla Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Hello! I have been cooking some freeze for later meals for my brother and sister-in-law because they are days (maybe hours?) away from having a baby!! And all I know about birthing babies is that you’re supposed to bring people food.

What to do when someone has a baby (I think?):  

1. Bring food.

2. Drop it off and leave.

3. That’s it.

I don’t know this for a fact, but a friend who’s had two babies told me that would be her preference. Noted!


I made them a chicken and stuffing casserole. That’s already frozen and on the way to their home thanks to my mom.

And yesterday I made this Tortilla Breakfast Casserole Recipe. It’s super easy and a great way to use up corn tortillas if you don’ t happen to plow through a 50 pack before they get stale.
