Gluten-free and easy to customize, these Breakfast Nachos are quick, easy way to change up your breakfast routine!
Let’s talk about these breakfast nachos. If you’ve been reading the blog for any length of time, you know I love breakfast. Not only do I love it, I NEED it. I pretty much cannot function unless I eat within 30 minutes of waking up. Usually I’m an oatmeal kinda girl but every once and a while it’s fun to change things up.
By change it up, I pretty much mean switch from oatmeal to eggs. I love eggs and truth be told, I don’t just eat them for breakfast. I’ve eaten eggs for dinner 3 nights this week, including eating these “breakfast nachos” last night. They’re perfect for pretty much every meal…but I’m calling them breakfast because for many people, eggs = breakfast food.
I guess what I’m saying is, don’t limit yourself! If you wanna eat these for lunch or dinner, by all means…go for it!
I’m not giving you any ingredient quantities either, because like most nachos, you simply adjust the toppings for the amount of people you want to feed. They’re very forgiving and exact quantities aren’t needed in order for you to make these successfully!
Here’s what you do:Print
Gluten-free and easy to customize, these breakfast nachos are a fun way to change up your morning routine!
- bell pepper, diced
- onion, diced
- black beans
- chicken sausage
- corn tortilla chips
- Saute peppers, onions, chicken sausage and beans for 5 minutes. Push the mixture to one side of the pan and add eggs.
- Cook until scrambled and mix well.
- Spoon mixture over chips and top with cheese, avocado and salsa.
- Serve warm.
Feel free to customize. Use your favorite veggies, leave out the meat or beans, etc to fit your liking.[br][br]If you’re making a big batch, feel free to put them on a baking sheet and put them under the broiler for a few minutes once you add the cheese. [br][br]If you’re making a smaller batch and want the cheese extra melty, pop your plate in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Pretty easy right?! Like I mentioned in the notes above, these are easy to customize! Leave out the sausage or beans if you want to.
If you’re making a big pan and want lots of cheese you can always pop them under the broiler to melt the cheese!

Oh my YES! It’s funny that I love eggs but rarely have them for breakfast. It’s almost always lunch or dinner. Maybe because I, like you, need to eat asap when I wake up.
Lucie Palka says
Wow, this looks like a great idea if you are tired of eating the eggs the same ol’ way! Looks delish!

Arman @ thebigmansworld says
YESSS. Savoury for breakfast is all I’m craving these days and the fact that you nacho’d it? thanks!

I go back and forth btw eggs and oatmeal. Usually I will eat one for months and months and then suddenly switch to the other for the same pattern. Right now I am back on eggs but before I was making steel cut oats in the rice cooker.
These look awesome. I’ll have to give them a try!
Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl says

Emma @ Em-powered Wellness says

Elizabeth @ Enjoy Every Bite says
Yum! We do breakfast burritos a lot but never breakfast nachos! Love this idea, and love that I’m not the only one who dies without eating breakfast first thing in the morning 🙂
Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie says
Eating is most definitely the first thing I have to do in the morning. It’s what gets me out of bed. Screw coffee and pass the food. I love these breakfast nachos! I’ve actually made breakfast nachos before but would love to change up the toppings.
