  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cups chopped fully-cooked ham (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 6 green onions thinly sliced, divided
  • 2 6 ounce packages shredded Sargento Shreds® Reserve Series 18-Month Aged Cheddar, divided
  • 8 medium size (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half or whole milk or a combination of both
  • ½ teaspoon all-purpose seasoning salt
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • salsa and sour cream for serving


  • Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until fork tender. Remove skillet from the heat and set aside.
  • Combine the ham, half of the green onions, the bell pepper, and one package Sargento Shreds in a large mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate remaining half of the green onions. Scoop about ⅓ cup of the ham and cheese mixture onto each tortilla and roll them tightly. Place the filled tortillas seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
  • Whisk together the eggs, half-and-half (or whole milk), seasoning salt, and flour, and pour the mixture evenly over the enchiladas. Cover the dish with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next morning, remove the baking dish from the refrigerator and let it rest on the kitchen counter while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake, covered, for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and sprinkle remaining cheese over enchiladas. Bake for 10 more minutes or until tops are golden brown and the egg mixture is set.
  • Garnish with reserved green onions and serve with salsa and sour cream on the side.
