Today is a special day. It is my husbands birthday! I figured it would make sense to post about a recipe he loves on his birthday; Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Nachos. First off. He loves breakfast. Fun fact: he once screamed this while competing in a push-up contest against his older brother. Making everyone laugh and him winning the push-up contest (p.s. if you are ready right now don’t be mad at me for sharing this fun fact).

So getting back to the breakfast thing. You’ll find me cooking up a big breakfast for us every Saturday and Sunday. I also make my husband breakfast just about every day. Whether it’s a veggie bagel sandwich (I’ll be introducing this recipe to you next month) or an egg and cheese on a biscuit. Sometimes we get crazy and I make my faux chocolate croissants. But on the weekends this man wants some hardcore breakfast. Some days I’m tired of the same-old same-old and that’s how these Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Nachos came about.

Last month, I shared my recipe for Egg White Tacos. If you remember, I utilized leftovers for the tacos and for these nachos as well. Seriously, you can put together a single plate of Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Nachos in less than 15 minutes. Using up all the leftovers from the night before and then some! I’ve made these nachos now over a dozen times. It is the one thing that my husband request if he knows we have leftover taco toppings from the night before. Of course get creative. If you don’t have all these taco toppings on hand use what you have and of course most importantly what you like! If you want to make this gluten free and have corn chips on hand… use those! No queso? No problem. Just add extra cheese into your scrambled eggs as they cook! These Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Nachos are fit for any fiesta–especially a birthday fiesta!
