New Mexico Green Chile Breakfast Burritos Recipe

Wow these are really good. I really wasn't expecting to much from this recipe since well its a breakfast burrito. Not much surprises there. But... the green chili sauce in this recipe makes these amazing! I don't think I'll ever eat another breakfast burrito without it. I did change the recipe a little bit. I could not find frozen Hatch, New Mexico green chili peppers so I used canned diced and roasted green chilies, since I was using canned I used 2 7oz cans to make sure I got a lot of the green chili flavor. Also instead of using vegetable oil to fry the potatoes in I used the bacon grease (why let all that flavor go?). My potatoes must have been really big because I had way to many after shredding them. I think 2-3 would have been perfect. Thanks for the recipe I will be making this again!

this was excellent and my guests loved it. To save time I used frozen hash browns and I also layered the dish like a casserole and baked at 350 for 10 minutes (as all the ingredients were warm). Tortillas-egg/green chile mixture-bacon-hash browns-cheese. Then I served with sour cream and salsa...no leftovers!!!

EDIT --- I'm putting this at the top, because it's pretty important.. When simmering the chile, make sure to not let the peppers simmer for too long, they can begin to lose their flavor as they're already roasted/cooked beforehand. Also, if you can find it - use the FROZEN hatch green chile. Okay. So I'm kind of nervous to say this, as there may be several New Mexicans lurking about... BUT - I do hate green chile. Yes, I am a resident of New Mexico. Born and raised. This was the first time I've EVER liked green chile. I used mild because I don't like my chile to overwhelm the taste of the dish, but I still want a little "kick." I could walk across the street and pay $5 for this burrito at a taco truck, but it tasted 200x better while relaxing in my pj's and chowing down on this baby. THANK YOU "applejedi1," for this outstanding recipe. Now, if only I could eat one everyday without increasing my chances of that heart attack ;)

BUY FROZEN HASH BROWNS!!! I doubled the recipe and it toke at least an hour to make the STUPID hash browns and it was this huge mess! But the recipe overall was ah-mazing! the sauce was super easy and yummy. I put in sausage instead of bacon and added some cilantro. i got rave reviews all around. Warning: These burritos are very very filling:) Thanks for the recipe

I wanted something different for breakfast this morning so I tried this recipe. These were wonderful. My husband ate two and that is unusual. I reduced the serving size to three because there is only the two of us. The only thing I did different was to use Ortega canned chillies because that is what I had on hand. I used my hand blender to smooth out the sauce because I don't like chunks of onion and thickened the sauce more. I will be making these again for sure.

There's nothing like the flavor of fresh roasted Hatch green chile. Here are two sources for green chile from Albuquerque NM: Chile Addict http://www.chileaddictstore.com/cas_shop/index.asp Chile Tradition http://www.chiletraditions.com/

Yumm I loved these breakfast burritos. My potatoes stuck to the pan a lot but I have never been good at making hash browns. Still tasted great. The hatch chile sauce wasn't too spicy and truly made the dish.

Tried these for breakfast yesterday. They turned out great! They are so good and really hearty. This is something I will make on the weekends. Would love to have this when guests come over too. A great combination of flavors.

These didnt have much flavor for me. I couldnt find the chile peppers at my store so I used green bell peppers instead and iadded some slice up jalepano. But to us it was very bland until we added salsa.
