Mexican Eggs - Gluten & Dairy Free

Granted, my husband and I adore Mexican food…the real stuff. But our pantry is almost always stocked with ingredients for this recipe, perfect for breakfast or dinner. It is super delicious, super easy to make, and lends itself to the creative cook who likes to add little bits of things to be used up or that suit family preferences. You could play around the ingredients a lot here….let me know if you find a winning combo, I am sure I will never make this recipe exactly the same every time myself! Enjoy!

Mexican Eggs
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • 4-8 (depending on how lean you would like it) slices bacon, chopped (Trader Joe’s Applewood Smoked Bacon) I have also used chicken chorizo sausage in place of the bacon!
  • 1 can (16 oz.) refried beans (I used Trader Joe’s Salsa Style) or try your hand at making your own, easily!
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green chiles (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons Fiesta Chili Powder (a salt-free seasoning found in most bulk spice sections), optional
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, optional
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup allowed shredded cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions (divided)
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • Warm tortillas
  • Salsa (I love taqueria style made by Herdez, found in Mexican food sections in a can)
Instructions
  1. Brown the pieces of bacon in a 12-in. frying pan.
  2. When browned and crispy, drain on a paper towel, discarding all but 2 tbsp. bacon fat in pan.
  3. Add the beans, chiles, spices, and most of the green onions in the pan over medium heat, stirring often, until simmering.
  4. Make 4 wells in beans with a spoon and crack an egg into each hole. Cook, covered, just until eggs set, about 4 minutes.
  5. Top with cheese, remaining green onions, tomato, cilantro, avocado, and reserved bacon.
  6. Serve with tortillas and salsa.
