This Tex Mex Slow Cooker Breakfast is the perfect easy recipe for an effortless morning meal! Layers of tender hashbrowns, sausage and bell peppers are combined with a perfectly seasoned egg mixture.
The whole thing is topped off with cheddar cheese and cooks effortlessly in your slow cooker while you’re enjoying morning coffee with your guests. A perfect delicious fiesta of flavors, this will definitely become a breakfast go-to!
I am so excited to have partnered with McCormick to bring you this recipe.
I love using my slow cooker to prepare meals ahead of time, especially when I’m feeding a crowd!
With layers of hashbrowns, sausage and crisp fresh bell peppers, this Slow Cooker Breakfast is seasoned perfectly with taco seasoning (and of course a generous serving of cheddar cheese).
The evening before I brown the meat and chop all of the vegetables. In the morning it’s as simple as layering everything in the slow cooker and turning it on.
While I have used sausage, peppers and onions as the main add ins in this slow cooker breakfast, you can add all of your favorites, like ham, corn, black beans, cooked mushrooms, tomatoes, or whatever else you might have in the fridge.
If you want to keep things a bit more simple, just use the seasoning and the eggs for a quick and easy dish that is loaded with tons of flavor!
I make this with shredded hashbrown potatoes but you can also use diced hashbrowns or even leftover roasted potatoes if you happen to have them on hand! If not, you can sub out the potatoes for cornbread or bread to create a strata style breakfast casserole!
Serve it with salsa, guacamole, sour cream and garnish with green onion or fresh parsley! Not only flavorful, but so beautiful!

Will this recipe do well if doubled? I’m making it for a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast, so many people.
I have never tried doubling this so I can’t say for sure Kimberly. A Crock Pot works best if it’s 1/2 to 2/3 full, and a maximum of 3/4 full. So if doubling you will want to make sure it is no more than 3/4 full.
This is a really great option for us, as the five people in the household live on differing schedules. We can grab a bowl when we’re ready, and have such a quick and easy breakfast for a couple of days. It refrigerates well. 2 minutes in the microwave at 40%, and then leaving it in there for another minute, heats it up without overcooking it.
I didn’t add enough salt and pepper the first time, but that is actually good, as people like theirs differently. (I prefer adding an “everything but the bagel” type seasoning, myself, while my husband likes to salt and pepper his own. And the youngest wants to see those on top of theirs.)
I love how versatile this recipe is for you Sarah! I am so glad you enjoyed it.
Sounds delicious! My concern is only 2 cups of hashbrowns? Just doesn’t seem like enough lol
Unfortunately I cannot find the seasoning mix in our grocery stores so it was very bland. :-(
As with any recipe, eliminating the seasoning mix will definitely make it bland. It appears the “McCormick Good Morning Slow Cooker Mexican Egg Casserole Seasoning Mix” has been discontinued since this recipe was posted. I would suggest a package of taco seasoning in its place or homemade taco seasoning. I hope that helps!

Holly I cannot find that specific McCormick seasoning anywhere. What can I use as substitution????
Sheila, you could use your favorite mexican spice mix. This McCormick Pepper Salsa Breakfast Seasoning from Amazon would be a perfect substitute!
Regarding your “Mexican Slow Cooker Breakfast” recipe, I just checked the McCormick Canada and the McCormick USA websites and neither one lists the McCormick Good Morning Slow Cooker Mexican Egg Casserole Seasoning Mix.
What would you use as a substitute?
You could use your favorite mexican spice mix Charles. This McCormick Pepper Salsa Breakfast Seasoning from Amazon would be a perfect substitute!
It appears the McCormick breakfasts seasonings have been discontinued since this recipe was posted. I would suggest a package of taco seasoning in its place or homemade taco seasoning. I hope that helps!
How much of a difference is there between the 2 seasonings (the one that’s discontinued and the taco seasoning?). I use their taco seasoning often when I make my homemade ground beef tacos but I never use the entire pkg. I want that flavor but I don’t want it to take over all the other flavors coming from the rest of the ingredients. Would you suggest I use the entire pkg? I’ve been going through your site throughout the day. I’ve come across some pretty interesting recipes. This one in particular is actually making my mouth water, lol. My son is a picky eater but I think even he would enjoy this…
So glad you’ve found some recipes to enjoy Tammie! This makes quite a large amount so we use the whole package.
