Ranchero Egg Bake

I was looking for a good breakfast casserole; this one is good, but I don't think I would make it for breakfast, because it has a good amount of meat and salsa-spiciness- neither are breakfast-type food in my opinion. Still, a yummy casserole, and very easy to put together. (Also delicious sideways...)

1 lb ground pork sausage
1 can (4 oz) diced green chiles
1/2 cup water
1 packet (1.25 oz) taco seasoning mix
12 yellow corn taco shells, divided
1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar or taco cheese
10 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup salsa
1 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Brown sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring to separate meat as it cooks. Add chiles, water, and seasoning mix. Set aside.
3. Crush 10 taco shells coarsely; spread on bottom of 13 x 9 casserole pan. Sprinkle beans evenly over taco shells. Spread meat mixture evenly on top. Sprinkle cheese evenly over meat.
4. Combine eggs, salsa, and milk in a medium mixing bowl. Pour over casserole ingredients. Crush remaining 2 taco shells; sprinkle evenly over casserole. Bake for 45 minutes.
