Have you made a breakfast in your slow cooker yet? If you haven’t, the holidays are the perfect time to start! There is nothing better than a delicious breakfast for the holidays. And with guests over at your house this season, it is the perfect way to welcome them.

I was so incredibly excited when McCormick released their new line of Slow Cooker Breakfast Seasoning Mixes! If there is anyone that I love and trust to add awesome flavor to the dish I am creating, it is McCormick. I chose to use the Slow Cooker Mexican Egg Casserole Seasoning Mix for this recipe. We love Mexican flavors at our house and it was especially delicious topped with chopped tomato, avocado, and cilantro!

This recipe couldn’t be easier to make. You start by browning the chorizo. Then, you throw in the potatoes, corn, and black beans, and chorizo into the slow cooker. Whisk some eggs, add the seasoning packet and cheese, pour in the slow cooker and you are good to go!

Can I add eggs to the slow cooker?

Yes, you definitely can! Just whisk the eggs and pour them on top of the hash brown mixture. Make sure they cook through and are set and spring back when touched.

I don’t know about you guys but with the holidays I am all about little effort. Throw some ingredients in a slow cooker and let it do its thang while I can try to enjoy the holidays with the people I love.

Top this off with your favorite toppings, avocado, sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and tomatoes and you have the perfect breakfast. This will become a new family favorite!

  1. I am having a hard time finding the McCormick packet you used. Can you use the taco seasoning packet? How different would it be? What do you recommend as a substitute?

    1. It will all depend on how large your slow cooker is. It will be able to cook for longer. I would recommend using a few slow cookers to make it work a little better and cook it evenly. Enjoy! XOXO

  2. 5 stars
    THIS meal looks very tasty and I’ll be trying it on a smaller scale as my Fiance’ is not into spicey foods warmer than “Mild” on the Tongue Heat Scale. LOL
    But as for me, I am TOTALLY looking forward to trying this, although I’m not terribly keen on waking 4 hours early to prep this dish then go back to bed and try to get back to sleep then wake up again in time to eat. Although the idea of awaking to the smells of the melding aroma’s of the chorizo and the other ingredients IS quite compelling.
    And served with a warm flour tortilla or a couple of smaller warmed corn tortilla’s is making my mouth water as I type this. YUM!!
    But one question:
    Can this be made the night before, removed from the crock pot (hopefully intact like your picture shows!!), then heated in either the microwave (yuck!) or warmed in the oven (Best!) and served with the tortilla’s?
    It’s just that I don’t think I could rise at my “normal” time, make everything, toss them into the crock pot then suffer through 2.5 to 4 hours before being able to chow down on this!!
    And if I have guests (fat chance. Sigh) asking THEM to wait for all this to cook would create a battlefield on my property! LOL
    One does NOT invite a handful of (former) Army Guys over the night before to sit around a campfire on my property, reminiscing about the good old days and tossing down some brewski’s till the wee hours and expect them to wait s couple of hours to chow down! HAH!
    Most of us are used to standing in some Chow Hall line, stuffing who-knows-what on a stainless steel tray, then (if we are lucky) sit down with a BIG mug of STOUT, Black, Coffee, then shoveling the contents of our trays into our mouths and chewing it on our way out the door (and usually running off to some perceived “Crisis!!”) or off to some grinding training or mundane equipment cleaning or repairs.
    In short (?), can this be made ahead of time and easily re-heated for breakfast?
    Sorry for the long post but THANK YOU for the GREAT cooking ideas!
    God Bless.

    1. I totally understand! My slow cooker has a timer on the outside. I put all the ingredients in before I go to bed the night before then set a timer for it to begin cooking at a certain time. I know not all slow cookers have this function. I would recommend making it the evening before and then warming it up in the oven. Hope that helps!! Best of luck! XOXO
