If you’re a football fan, it’s not surprising that your Super Bowl Sunday is an all-day affair, which means your festivities likely begin within hours of waking. If that’s the case, your first meal of the day is likely on your mind– and we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
That’s right, friends, here’s a nutritious and delicious recipe that gives you a reason to eat nachos for breakfast. It’s such a simple idea, but one that will appeal to just about any group of fans.
The only thing you really need to make nachos a breakfast food is eggs, but in order to consider them a good-for-you dish, a nutritious “base” is needed. That’s why Simply7’s Kale Chips are an awesome pick. (I chose the Sea Salt variety, but Simply7 also makes Dill Pickle and Lemon & Olive Oil flavors.) They’re a tasty ridged chip (perfect for nachos), and they’re designed to pack the fresh flavor and great benefits of kale.
And, of course, we all know kale is a wonderful way to boost the nutrients in your diet. Simply7’s Kale Chips have nearly 80% of your daily Vitamin K, so they’re definitely a high-quality snack. (The brand also makes Quinoa, Lentil, and Hummus Chips.)
Additionally, all of Simply7’s products adhere to seven core standards that the company stands behind. Hence, the Simple7 name: Clean ingredients (nothing genetically modified), no added preservatives, 0 grams trans fats, no artificial colors or flavors, gluten-free, simple ingredients, and simply delicious. With all of these standards in place, you can feel good about eating these chips!
Ok, it’s breakfast nacho time!
- 1 bag Simply7 Sea Salt Kale Chips
- 2 eggs + 2 egg whites
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh salsa
- 4-6 grape tomatoes
- 1 bunch of scallions
- salt + pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Scramble eggs in a fry pan on the stove top.
Prepare your favorite nacho ingredients: Slice grape tomatoes and scallions. Other tasty (and healthy!) topping ideas: Black beans, green bell pepper, jalapenos, sour cream, avocado, crumbled feta, sliced black olives, and chunked chicken breast. Anything goes!
Spread Simply7 Sea Salt Kale Chips in a baking dish and then top them with scrambled eggs, sliced tomatoes, salsa, and shredded cheese.
Bake nachos for about 8-10 minutes or until cheese is fully melted.
Remove pan from oven, garnish with scallions, and serve immediately!
