Easy Breakfast Nachos

This quick and easy breakfast is perfect for familys on the go!


I don’t know how things are in your home, but in our family weekday mornings can be just a little bit hectic.  And while there are many things that contribute to the chaos, at the top of our stressor list is the task of making breakfast our kids will actually eat!


Great family meals don’t have to be complicated. This mini cookbook serves up 10 easy meals, each only requiring 5 ingredients or less

Luckily, these gluten free breakfast nachos come together with just 5 ingredients, are a fun alternative to plain old scrambled eggs and can be made for 1 person or 10. We even made a fun little video to prove how simple this meal is!

And here are the step by step instructions.

Here is what you need:

1 bag tortilla chips
4-6  large eggs
1 8oz. bag shredded cheese
1 jar salsa
1 4 oz. container sour cream

Step 1: Fill two bowls with tortilla chips, then set aside.

Step 2: Spray pan with cooking spray, then beat 4 eggs. Mix well and add to warmed pan.

Step 3: Cook until eggs are done. Split cooked eggs over tortilla chip.

Step 4: Top with salsa, shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

Step 5: Serve along side some fresh fruit and enjoy!

    I mean, seriously?
    Nachos for Breakfast?
    Overnight oats are perfect for children.
    I make a big pot in the evening where I mix milk, oats and some fruit mash (mostly apples, that I have been throwing in the mixer) and put it in the fridge.
    In the morning I just have to put a ladle full in a bowl.
    Its much healthier.
    And my children eat 2-3 days from it.
    They eat it since they eat complementary food and love it.

    They serve something similar to this in Mexico. They don’t have salsa like that here, for which I lament over a lot! The sauce here is more liquidy, but still very good. It’s one of my favorite breakfasts here, and a sure favorite of the locals.

    Sounds good, but I will use Pita to keep salt lower.
