BreakfastNachos_Ziplist

I love Mexican food. I would eat it everyday for every meal if I could. So, when I saw a picture on Pinterest of breakfast nachos, I knew that I needed to make them asap…and make them Skinny of course! These Skinny Breakfast nachos were a huge hit at the Sunday brunch with my family, and I will definitely be making them again.

A quick tip I have always used when making eggs is that I combine 3 egg whites with one egg yolk and mix well before cooking. I prefer this over just using egg whites as I like my eggs to have some color and I like the taste of egg yolks in my eggs but feel free to just substitute egg whites.  I have also used egg beaters which work great as well. I served the Skinny Breakfast Nachos with a side of salsa and you can even dress them up with some reduced-fat sour cream and jalapeños.  I would love to get your thoughts on the recipe and see any pictures of your Skinny Breakfast Nachos that you make at home!  Enjoy!
