Baked Breakfast Quesadilla

Here is a Cinco de Mayo Breakfast that packs a lot of flavor.  My Baked Breakfast Quesadilla which can be served with or without scrambled eggs they also make a yummy appetizer for your Cinco de Mayo Party.

Baked Breakfast Quesadilla

1 pound country ground sausage
1 bag Simply Potatoes - Diced Potatoes with Onions
6 flour tortillas 
1/2 onion, diced
1 large jalapeño pepper, diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chipolte chili powder
2/3 cup mexican blend cheese
serve with a side of salsa and sour cream
Optional:  Scrambled Eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the salt, pepper, garlic powder and chili powder.  Heat oil in a skillet and add the onions and jalapeño pepper sauté for 4 minutes.  Add sausage and 2 teaspoons of the spice mixture. Using a wooden spoon break up the sausage as it cooks.  Cook until crumbled and no longer pink.  Add potatoes and the rest of the spice mixture and cook until potatoes are a golden brown.  Place flour tortillas on a cookie sheet and spoon the sausage mixture onto half of the tortilla (at this point you can add scrambled eggs on top of the sausage and potatoes if desired)  Top with salsa and mexican blend shredded cheese.  Fold tortilla over and place in the oven, bake for 15 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.  Cut in half serve with salsa and sour cream.
