I love Mexican food. Even for breakfast. Huevos Rancheros was one of the first things I really got into when I began eating eggs and loving breakfast food. No more huevos rancheros these days though because beans. Instead I’ll do fajita style scrambles or egg-muffins. In this case I found a recipe for a Chorizo made with ground turkey. It’s basically taco meat – the spice combination is a little different than taco seasoning but it tastes the same to me. Regardless, it’s delicious and when paired with the peppers, onions, jalapeno, avocado, pepper-jack cheese and runny eggs, it disappears from my plate rather quickly.
I just batch cooked the meat and veggies one morning. I get Cabot cheese because it’s lactose free so I grated a good amount of the block to sprinkle on each morning. It’s easy to microwave the meat and veggies while you fry your eggs and then throw it all on the plate to let the cheese melt a little. Then devour immediately!
I call it a hash when it’s just a bunch of random stuff tossed together with fried eggs. If they were scrambled (which you can totally do) I would call it a scramble. Not really sure if hash is the appropriate name for this dish but it works for me.
I only ever eat 1/4 of an avocado at a time. It’s about 5g of fat but a lot of fiber too. (And fiber isn’t always a good thing for me. I already get too much). But 1/4 of a medium avocado is plenty for a serving of this.
So if you’re down with Mexican food for breakfast, definitely try this out or some of my other ideas below!
