  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika

    Top with half of the cheese.
  • Repeat layers.
  • Beat milk and eggs together in a large bowl, until well-beaten. Add in the spices and mix well.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the top of the layered ingredients.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    For a 9x13 pan, bake 50-60 minutes.
    For a 9x9 pan, bake 70-80 minutes.
    Remove from the oven once the middle is fully set. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with avocado, sour cream, and salsa.
