Corn Tortilla Egg Bake

I've been on a REAL corn tortilla binge while I've been in Utah and this is one of the yummy recipes I've used them in. It's had rave reviews from everyone I've fed it to so far!

Corn Tortilla & Sausage Quiche

1/2 lb sausage
6 corn tortillas
1/2 cup shredded "Mexican Blend" cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1 small can (1/4 cup) chopped green chilies
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup fresh cilantro

In a large skillet, brown the sausage.

Place 5 tortillas into a 9" pie plate, overlapping and extending a bit past the rim. Place the last tortilla in the middle. Put the sausage over the tortillas and sprinkle with half of the cheeses and the can of chilies.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, cottage cheese and chili powder. Slowly pour over the chilies and meat.

Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes. The center will be puffed and lightly brown.

Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with sour cream and salsa.
