Breakfast casseroles are such a lifesaver when trying to feed a crowd. Huevos Rancheros Casserole is the perfect spicy egg dish to serve for breakfast or brunch ready in under 30 minutes.

This casserole works great with sunny side up eggs or scrambled eggs.

Since the eggs are cooked separately, you can still serve this to people with egg allergies or serve the eggs on the side.

* Tostadas are crunchy fried corn tortillas and can be found next to tortillas in most grocery stores. If you can find them, just buy corn tortillas and either quickly fry them in a very hot skillet or try baked tostadas.
