  • 12 oz. cooked beef (such as steak or pot roast), cut into bite-size pieces or shredded
  • 3 cups frozen tater tots
  • 1 cup green enchilada sauce
  • 2 eggs, scrambled
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or equal parts Monterey Jack and cheddar)
  • Optional toppings: chopped green onions or parsley

Directions to Nacho Nirvana:

Total Time: 55 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

  1. Prepare the Tater Tots: Start by placing the frozen tater tots in a single layer on a greased or parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake them according to the package directions or until they are golden brown and perfectly crisped. Once baked, remove them from the oven and push the potatoes close together in a single layer so that their edges touch slightly.
  2. Preheat the Oven: Increase the oven temperature to 425°F if it’s not already heated to this temperature.
  3. Layer the Ingredients: Now comes the fun part! Evenly layer the tater tots with the cooked beef, scrambled eggs, diced red bell pepper, green enchilada sauce, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese. The combination of warm, crispy tater tots with savory beef, fluffy scrambled eggs, and zesty enchilada sauce is what makes these nachos truly exceptional.
  4. Bake to Perfection: Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until all the ingredients are heated through, and the cheese is gloriously melted, forming a gooey, irresistible topping.
  5. Garnish and Serve: Once out of the oven, garnish your Southwestern Beef Breakfast Nachos with chopped green onions or parsley for a burst of freshness and color. Now, they are ready to be served and devoured!

Savor the Flavor:

With each delightful bite, you’ll experience a medley of flavors ranging from the hearty, succulent beef to the crispy perfection of the tater tots. The slight heat from the enchilada sauce and the crunch of the red bell peppers add a southwestern flair that elevates these nachos to a whole new level.

Whether you’re planning a leisurely brunch with friends or a cozy family breakfast, these Southwestern Beef Breakfast Nachos are guaranteed to steal the show. So, why wait? Gather your ingredients, preheat your oven, and treat yourself to a breakfast delight that will have everyone coming back for seconds! Enjoy your nacho adventure!
