Directions

  1. 1. Crack eggs into a cup and beat with a fork to incorporate - add a pinch of salt & pepper if you like.
  2. 2. Crush taco chips into a small glass (or microwave safe) bowl.
  3. 3. Dot chips with the salsa (enchilada sauce will work if you don’t have any salsa).
  4. 4. Pour beaten eggs over chips & salsa.
  5. 5. Sprinkle with cheese and microwave for 1.5 to 2 minutes on high. Let cool for 2 minutes and enjoy!
  6. 6. Other things that can be added under the egg layer are cooked peppers, cooked meat, beans, or cooked veggies. I have not tried it yet but you could probably substitute the taco chips for cooked rice or quinoa. My sister sometimes uses just a corn tortilla spread with enchilada sauce for the bottom layer.
