My mom always served this on Christmas morning growing up so it's a meal that carries lots of memories for me. 

1 lb hot ground sausage
18 eggs
splash of milk
1 green bell pepper (chopped)
1 onion (finely chopped)
1 tomato (seeded and chopped)
2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
8 oz colby jack cheese, shredded
7 oz bag of corn tortilla chips, crushed
flour or corn tortillas for serving
avocado and salsa for garnish

Brown sausage in large skillet.  I like to really brown the meat.  I think the carmelization adds extra flavor so be sure to cook it 5-7 minutes past the point where the meat is "done".  Watch closely and stir often to avoid burning.  Once you get it to the point where it's crispy on the outside, add the onion and bell pepper.  Saute until the veggies are tender (about 10 minutes).  Put aside in a large bowl.  Stir in tomato & cilantro and season with salt and pepper (easy on the salt since the chips usually have them).  Meanwhile, beat the eggs with a splash of milk and add to the same skillet.  Cook eggs until they are done to your liking then add cheese to melt.  Fold eggs and chips into sausage mixture.  Serve on tortillas with salsa and avocado.  This makes enough to feed a large crowd.
