Breakfast nachos are the perfect breakfast or dinner addition!
There are two things that make me jump out of bed in the morning. When one of the kids is crying and when I have an amazing idea for a new recipe. Today I am talking about the second one. And man did I jump out of bed that day! I mean seriously.. breakfast nachos! Who wouldn’t want to jump out of bed for these?!
The answer is nobody. Nobody wouldn’t want to jump out of bed for these. [Is that a double negative? I’m horrible at grammar. But look. Nachos!] I didn’t make these for breakfast though. I made them for lunch one day last week when Ryon was out of town. Which means I had the whole skillet to myself. [Mwahahah!]

No, I didn’t eat them all. I thought about. I thought real hard about it. But in the end, no one needs a whole skillet full of breakfast nachos. [Even for lunch.] I’m not going to judge anyone who wants to eat the whole skillet though. You go right ahead and eat away.
But if you do want to share then you are a better person then me. I didn’t eat the whole skillet in one sitting but I did have the leftovers the next morning. Alone. But I did end up sharing eventually.
I made these this weekend and shared with Ryon. [See? I’m not a horrible person after all.] I thought real hard about making them and giving him the smaller plate. [REAL hard!] I was nice and gave him the bigger portion. Let’s just not tell him about this whole other skillet that I consumed while he was gone, kay? Cool. Thanks yall.

this was great
I can’t wait to try them. No I will probably not share. I also love making homemade tortilla chips. Do you spray or put oil on them to make them crispy? My class had us use Pam Cooking Spray and flip them half way through? Mine never look like yours. I used you picture as a reminder that sometimes you need to just do something nice for yourself. Have a great weekend.
I just put the cut flour tortillas in the oven and occasionally flip them. I don’t put anything on them.
These look great. I’m looking at my leftovers from Valentine’s Day and wondering how about dessert nachos? Cinnamon Sugar tortilla chips, you could add a no bake cheesecake filling, cut up seasonal fruit, chocolate and caramel drizzle. You would just put everything on a plate. Hope Y’all have a great weekend. Key Lime Pie Nachos anyone? The possibilities.
Ohh both of those sound good! I’m going to have to try them both!
