We usually splurge for breakfast on the weekends. Weekdays are hectic getting hubbyman off to work and one kid off to school, so we usually have something easy like a bagel or toast or cereal. But the weekends are filled with great breakfasts like pancakes, waffles, french toast, egg burritos, and more.
Hubbyman and I were trying to duplicate a breakfast he had on our recent vacation, but it didn’t work out. We ended up with this really tasty version of breakfast nachos. The kids thought it was really cool that we let them have chips at breakfast…it went over really well.
I used an uncooked corn tortilla product from TortillaLand for our breakfast. I had never heard of uncooked corn tortillas, so I was really excited to give them a try. I loved the fresh taste that they had. I never realized how bad traditional corn tortillas are from the store until I had these. They are gluten free, only 60 calories per tortilla, and only 5 ingredients!!!! These are definitely worth picking up a package and giving them a try. Next up is a big batch of enchiladas! (Check out my recipe using the uncooked flour tortillas from TortillaLand too….Nutella-Banana Rolls)
8 uncooked corn tortillas
1/4 lb breakfast sausage or chorizo
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
garnish: sour cream, salsa, additional cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut each corn tortilla into 8 wedges and arrange on baking sheet in a single layer. Cook for 5-10 minutes until crispy.
Meanwhile, cook sausage over medium heat, breaking it apart into crumbles. When thoroughly cooked, remove to a papertowel-lined plate and remove any excess grease from the pan. Break eggs into a medium bowl and beat until well combined. Pour into hot pan and cook over medium heat stirring continually until eggs are almost set. When eggs are almost done add in cheese and sausage. Stir well to combine.
Layer chips, egg mixture, and garnishes as desired. Enjoy.
