Meet Your New Favourite Slow-Cooked Breakfast: A Mexican Casserole

My slow cooker has been on overdrive this year. Whether I'm feeding a crowd or prepping meals for the week ahead of time, there's no piece of equipment that comes in handy more than my crockpot. This Paleo overnight casserole had become a staple in my kitchen, until I met this Mexican breakfast. Gluten-free, protein-rich, and under 400 calories, it's the perfect slow-cooked recipe to cook up on Sunday afternoon, slice up, and enjoy all week long. With that said, this casserole is almost too good to keep for yourself.

The next time you're in need of a crowd-pleasing dish, bring this recipe along. Just make sure you save a slice for yourself — it will go fast!
