Breakfast Nachos

Living in Texas, there is almost nothing better than finding good Tex-Mex…especially if it can be made in the privacy of my own kitchen. Imagine this: Early on a Sunday morning, birds chirping outside, heat already radiating off the driveway, a soft breeze bringing in the scent of roses growing outside of my window, and the sound of eggs and bacon sizzling on the stove. That’s why I love these Breakfast Nachos. They are everything good about Texas, and summer, and exactly what I crave for me and my family on these hot, summer days. Enjoy!

What You Need To Make Breakfast Nachos:

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup kale, chopped
  • 1 cup Mexican shredded cheese
  • 2-3 fried eggs
  • 2-3 jalapeños, sliced
  • 2-3 fingerling potatoes
  • 3-4 flour tortillas
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 5 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Sour Cream (option)
  • Salsa (optional)

 

How To Make Breakfast Nachos:

Chop all veggies then set aside.

Slice fingerling potatoes (I prefer to slice potatoes to a 1/4″ – 1/2″ thickness),add Kosher salt and cracked black pepper then bake on a cookie sheet in 350 degree oven until finished, set aside.

In a hot skillet blister cherry tomatoes using 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, then set aside.

Wipe out skillet and using 1 Tablespoon of olive oil pan fry kale and set aside.

Cut flour tortillas into triangles and brown in a lightly oiled skillet using 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil, set aside.

Add final tablespoon of olive oil in a hot skillet fry 2-3 eggs and set aside, sunny-side up.

Fry bacon until crispy then crumble, when cool enough to safely handle.

When all ingredients are prepared layer veggies, potatoes, eggs, bacon and cheese over cut triangles.

Add sour cream and serve with salsa. Enjoy!

Pro Tip: Want to turn this into a lunch treat that your family will rave about? Swap out the eggs for grilled chicken breast and the sour cream for ranch dressing. Don’t forget some sliced avocado! Ranch Chicken Nachos…Mmmm…
