Salsa Verde Breakfast Casserole

My granddaughter is coming for a visit very soon and she love's Tex- Mex, but she lives up North so doesn't get real Tex Mex very often. I wanted to make a real special Tex Mex breakfast casserole for her and this recipe turned out to be a delicious casserole that we all just loved. This casserole has layers of sausage, eggs, vegetables and great Tex Mex flavor. One thing that I have loved about this recipe is that it freezes so well. If we have left over's I just freeze it in individual freezer bags and breakfast is ready for a grab n go. This is a great recipe that I hope you enjoy!
