Ingredients
Filling
1 (1-pound) package hot ground pork sausage
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
14 large eggs, beaten
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 (8-in) soft flour tortillas
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeños
Cheese Sauce
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup all-purposr flour
3 cups milk
1 (8-oz ) block Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
1 (4-oz) can chopped green chilis
3/4 tsp salt
Toppings: halved grape tomatoes, sliced green onions, chopped fresh cilantro
 
Directions
1. Prepare Cheese Sauce:  Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat;  whisk in flour until smooth.  Cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute.  Gradually whisk in milk;  cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 7 minutes or until thickened.  Remove from heat, and whisk in remaining ingredients until cheese is melted. 
2. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Remove from pan; drain well, pressing between paper towels.

3. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add green onions and cilantro, and sauté 1 minute. Add eggs, salt, and pepper, and cook, without stirring, until eggs begin to set on bottom. Draw a spatula across bottom of pan to form large curds. Continue to cook until eggs are thickened but still moist; do not stir constantly. Remove from heat, and gently fold in 1-1/2 cups Cheese Sauce and sausage.

4. Spoon about 1/3 cup egg mixture down the center of each flour tortilla; roll up. Place, seam side down, in a lightly greased 13- x- 9-inch baking dish. Pour remaining Cheese Sauce evenly over tortillas; sprinkle evenly with Monterey Jack cheese.

5. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Serve with desired toppings.

 
Notes:
Serves:  8

Tip:  Make the Cheese Sauce before scrambling the eggs so the sauce will be ready to add at the proper time.

Tip:  Prepare the recipe, without baking, and refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes; bake as directed.
