Recipe: Turkey Breakfast Sausage Chilaquiles with Jennie-O Lean Mild Turkey Breakfast Sausage Roll #Jennie-O #thebiggestloser

If you caught the latest episode of The Biggest Loser on NBC, you are probably just as excited about the Turkey Breakfast Sausage Chilaquiles as we are! Mexican food is HUGE in our household. The show partnered with Jennie-O and award winning chef, Cheryl Forberg, to create a really easy, healthy breakfast option that packs a lot of flavor without packing on the pounds. We were surprised to find that we had almost all of the ingredients in the house already and it's a really affordable recipe. Even better, it takes less than 30 minutes to make, so you can enjoy a great breakfast and still get out the door on time in the morning.

Chilaquiles is a classic Mexican dish, traditionally made with fried corn tortillas soaked in red or green salsa (sauce). It is usually topped with fresh Mexican cheese (queso fresco), onions, avocado and sometimes chicken. It can be served with refried beans and/or eggs, if desired. This recipe features better-for-you turkey breakfast sausage. Check it out below!
