Breakfast nachos are a great way to start the day! (Also delicious for dinner!)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Italian turkey sausage (hot or mild, depending your preference), removed from casing. You could also use regular sausage or chorizo, if you'd rather.
  • 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped (or about 1/4 cup chopped jarred jalapeños)
  • 8 oz package tortilla chips (we prefer blue, but any kind works)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or Monterey or Pepper Jack)
  • Optional toppings: sour cream or Greek yogurt, green onions, salsa, avocado, olives, etc

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cook turkey sausage in skillet, breaking it up with a spoon or spatula as it cooks. Once cooked through and no longer pink, remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
  3. Check your skillet. With turkey sausage, there’s a perfect amount of leftover grease to cook the eggs and remaining ingredients. If you’ve got a lot of grease, drain some of it out or use a paper towel to soak up some. If your pan is pretty dry, add a teaspoon or two of olive oil. Add your eggs and jalapeño and scramble until eggs are soft and mostly cooked. (They will continue to cook in the oven.) Stir in the tomatoes.
  4. Layer tortilla chips on a baking sheet, top with sausage, egg and tomato mixture and cover with cheese.
  5. Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve with your favorite nacho toppings!
