This casserole combines sautéed chicken, eggs and vegetables with Tex-Mex spices like cumin and chili powder. If you want a lighter breakfast, you can leave out the chicken. You could also replace the chicken with steak, turkey, sausage, or lamb. Feel free to add other spices like chipotle seasoning to your taste.
