Healthified Breakfast Nachos

Confession: we eat nachos like they’re going out of style. Well, chips & salsa, burritos and anything with the tex mex vibe going for it is like our crack. {Good example here}. Pretty sure we were Mexican in another life. A different story for a different time 🙂

Anyways, I make nachos for dinner a lot because they are delicious, easy, southwesty, fast, and just amazing. Southwesty is a technical term fyi. I Instagrammed a photo a few months back of our healthified dinner nachos and got a huge response with many of you asking for the recipe so here she blows. Story behind the healthified nachos? We were eating regular nachos so much that I felt the need to lessen the guilt by using baked chips and lots of veggies. —>true fact.

Well months later, nachos have continued to consume my every thought and one morning I got the brilliant idea to turn these bad boys into breakfast.

Pretty sure these are the best things in the world. And would take less time to make than pancakes. And are tastier.

Wait, no. I take it back. These are amazing smothered in warm syrup. And these are awesome too….except they’re waffles. So never mind. Who am I kidding? I love breakfast too much to make a fair decision.

Anyways, these come highly recommended from us and make amazing breakfasts, dinners or even lunches! Here’s how you make ’em:

Egg and butter in a pan

Start by cracking some eggs into a bowl and adding in some s&p. A splash of cream works magic but if you don’t have it, leave it out. Melt some butter over medium low heat in a non stick pan. I used these pretty blue ones from Teflon.

Scrambling eggs

Pour your eggs in and work them around the pan until they start scrambling and coming together.

Scrambled eggs

After a few minutes, they’re done! Don’t over cook these please!

Scrambled eggs

Remove the eggs from the pan and set aside just for a minute.

Paper towel oiling pan

Wipe that pan out with a paper towel {why you need to use nonstick pans!!}….

Tortilla chips in a pan

and line the bottom with some baked tortilla chips. These were the 1/2 the fat chips from Trader Joes.

Eggs on top of tortilla chips

Spread the scrambled eggs evenly over the chips

Cheese on top of eggs

and top with cheddar cheese.

Melted cheese on top of eggs

Throw this under the broiler for a minute or two until all that cheese is melty.

Tomatoes cilantro salsa and avocado on top of cheese

Add any desired toppings you like and serve! I used avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, onion and salsa because it’s what I had on hand. I’ve added chopped fresh baby spinach, guacamole, sour cream, corn, black beans, olives, sausage and green peppers to my nachos before and all are delicious! Experiment and see what you like 🙂 Here’s the printable:

    My non-stick pan is starting to get worn so I definitely need a new one to make my hashbrown breakfast casserole!

    Probably the Breakfast Omelets I make Every Morning for the Peeps in my household!! It seems I’m the only one who Loves and Enjoys cooking, and if I don’t, take out would be an everyday thing (for Them) – I ain’t havin’ That!
    *And this giveaway is Perfect Timing, because I just said on Monday that I need a New Pan – Mine is so beat!

    1. The first thing I would use the pans for would probably be the breakfast nachos since I want scrambled eggs….now!

    Fajitas. I need a good new pan for making fajitas after an…accident involving a boy and a very rough sponge on my pampered chef sauté pan. Le sigh.

    I think I’d have to make these nachos! Never thought to add eggs before, I too am a nacho addict. I love that you can toss those pans under the broiler.
