LOADED BREAKFAST NACHOS — Tortilla chips are topped with scrambled eggs, crumbled bacon, black beans and cheese, plus all of your favorite nacho toppings in this amazing Tex-Mex breakfast feast.
If anyone ever tells you that you can’t have nachos for breakfast, just show them this recipe for Loaded Breakfast Nachos and you’ll definitely change their ideas about breakfast.
I mean, what’s not to love about nachos for breakfast?
Personally, I’m a huge fan of savory, non-traditional foods for breakfast. Yes, I’m that weird person who will eat cold pizza from the refrigerator at 8 o’clock in the morning.
But trust me, these breakfast nachos–piled high with morning staples like scrambled eggs and bacon–are way better than cold pizza.
I mean, breakfast burritos and tacos are a thing, right? I’ve seen them on plenty of restaurant menus. So why not nachos for breakfast too?
Actually, I got the idea for these nachos when I saw them on the menu of a restaurant where my son and I were dining last fall when I was getting him situated at college.
Obviously, I thought nachos first thing in the morning was a brilliant idea. And after everyone else in the family tried them, they all agreed.
Of course, you can top your nachos with your own favorite breakfast foods. But I’d definitely start with some scrambled eggs, cheese, and some sort of breakfast meat, like bacon, ham or sausage.
Unless your going for a vegetarian version, of course. After that, the possibilities are endless–beans, jalapenos, tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, salsa, sour cream…..you get the idea.
You may not normally crave nachos first thing in the morning, but after trying these Loaded Breakfast Nachos, you definitely will!
