If breakfast turns into brunch, you can simply substitute the serrano pepper for a jalapeño and just segue into margarita territory. Just FYI ;)

What You'll Need
  • Group A: Nachos
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon tajin seasoning
  • 3-4 mini tortillas (to make the nacho chips; alternatively, use ready-made chips)
  • 3 tablespoons pork sausage crumble (about 1 large sausage worth)
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • Cilantro
  • Lime wedge
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Group B: Dressing
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon mayonnaise
  1. If making your own tortilla chips, preheat the oven to 350 F. Cut the tortillas into triangles, spread out onto a baking dish, and toast for 15 - 17 minutes till crispy.
  2. Mix all Group B ingredients to form a smooth, pourable dressing.
  3. Cook the sausage in a skillet till it is well done, then mince it till it resembles a crumble. Toss in the cherry tomatoes while the sausage is cooking and sear them till the skin starts to shine and look taut; char them a bit for more flavour.
  4. Whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and tajin. Brush the same skillet as before with butter or oil and cook the eggs to a scramble.
  5. Plate up: make a base of the tortilla chips or layer them along the edge of your dish/bowl. Start with the scrambled eggs, then layer up with the diced bell pepper, sausage crumble, tomatoes, serrano pepper slices, and shredded mozzarella. Scoop a dollop of sour cream, drizzle the dressing all over, and finish off with a sprinkle of cilantro leaves. Squeeze a lime wedge for extra flourish!
