Breakfast Nachos

This deliciously different breakfast was inspired by my favorite person in the world. I was talking to him one night and he said he had just made Breakfast Nachos. Immediately I could vision the dish, even before he told me his recipe. Well his recipe was a bit different from the picture I had already created in my head. His nachos were just sausage and cheese. Yesterday I brought my recipe to life. I love the soft cooked eggs with the crisp tortilla chips. The eggs are almost creamy and of course cheesy. I enjoyed all the garnishes, but I think my favorite was a little sour cream, salsa and cilantro.It was really very easy and I could see more variations in the future. Maybe some sausage to replace the bacon. Or maybe some re-fried beans even. Definitely a great new breakfast option.

Breakfast Nachos
Serves 1


2 slices of bacon
2 eggs, beaten
Dash of Sazon
1-1/2 tsp butter
1 tsp olive oil
1-1/2 Tbsp onion, chopped
1-1/2 Tbsp bell pepper, chopped
4 grape tomatoes, quartered
salt, black pepper, red pepper flake, to taste
7 round corn chips
2% shredded Mexican cheese blend

Optional toppings:
light sour cream
pickled jalapeno slices
lime, cut in wedges


Cook the bacon. When cool enough to handle chop into 2" pieces and set aside. Beat eggs in a small dish, season with a dash of Sazon and set aside. Heat a small skillet over medium heat, add butter and olive oil. When butter is melted add onion, peppers and tomatoes. Season with salt, black and red pepper. Saute until onions are translucent. Lower the heat to med-low and add the beaten eggs. Cook stirring the eggs until soft cooked. Remove from heat. Place corn chips on a microwave safe plate. Top each chip with a portion of egg mixture and a good pinch of shredded cheese. Microwave for 30 - 45 seconds until cheese is melted. Remove from microwave and top each nacho with a piece of bacon and the optional toppings of your choice. Serve!
