I had some pipian leftover from my turkey and pipian meal and I was wondering what I could use it for. The idea that most interested me was using the pipian to make some egg enchiladas for breakfast. It had been a while since I had last had enchiladas and I could just imagine them with a nice layer of golden brown melted cheese on top of the egg filled tortillas covered in moist pipian. I like h savoury foods for breakfast and the pipian egg enchiladas sounded like a great idea. I decided to keep it simple and I just scrambled the eggs (though you could easily use chopped hard boiled eggs) with some green onions for the filing. The enchiladas were pretty easy to make though they did need to bake for a while so they were not a quick breakfast, but perfect for a weekend. I still had a bit of pipian left and spread it out on the plates before serving the enchiladas on top. The egg enchiladas were nice and moist and the pipian worked well with the eggs and of course the cheesed helped as well. It was certainly a tasty breakfast!
Egg Enchiladas in Pipian
- 2 cups pipian
- 4 tortillas (6-8 inches diameter, I used whole wheat)
- 6 eggs (scrambled)
- 2 green onions (chopped)
- 1 cup cheese (grated)
- Spread a bit of the pipian on the bottom of your 8 inch square baking pan.
- Dip the tortilla into the pipian.
- Place some scrambled eggs onto the tortilla and wrap it up.
- Place the egg enchiladas into a baking pan and cover with the remaining pipian followed by the cheese.
- Bake in an oven until the pipian is bubbling and the cheese has meted and turned golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.
I don’t like eggs alone all that well, but I do love all of the interesting things you can do with them!
Yes, that is a TASTY breakfast!

Kevin!! I have never had egg enchiladas and mhmh..now I sure will try it. I have been away for a bit, but now I am back and like always, your blog is inspiring. 😀
I wish this is what I ate for breakfast this morning but sorry to say it was a cereal bar. This looks so much better.
I have to say your food blog is my favorite. I love your style! Please keep it up
Kevin, you are so creative. I’ve never thought of egg enchiladas. Delicious!
I had these at my favorite Veracruzana place, and they’re so good as a hangover cure.
Great idea! I love the thought of pipian with eggs.
I love how you jazzed up the eggs!!
Your recipes amaze me! This one sounds great. I love eggs and I love enchiladas!
I’m not much of a breakfast eater, but you could serve me this at lunch time. 🙂

I had missed your pipian recipe. I’m glad you linked it so I could catch up. This looks awesome.
Wow, these look and sound amazing!! Great idea!!
Kevin You taught me something today, I didn’t know what pipian was! Your enchilada looks wonderful!
What a unique creation Kevin. Pipian is new to me but it sounds like something I would enjoy very much.
I love enchiladas, I am going to be making some soon myself. This is a great take on it and an original idea. I had never heard of pipian until now but I did check out your post on it and it sounds great.
