Preheat oven to 350° F. Saute onions in a large skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
Increase heat to medium-high and stir in chorizo. Cook 5 minutes more while breaking up the meat.
Stir in flour and cook 1-2 minutes more. Reduce heat to medium and slowly stir in milk. Heat, stirring often, until it comes to a low boil and thickens slightly.
Remove pan from heat and stir in green chilies and 2-cups of cheese until melted. Let sit for a few minutes to cool.
If not enough room, transfer the mixture to a large bowl, then fold in hash browns. Whisk in eggs until well combined.
Pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with remaining cheese. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until the casserole has mostly set and the top is golden brown. Let sit 5 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.
