I love my Breakfast in a Skillet dishes, you can change them up to suit your moods. Now I can have it without all the carbs. My original one is made with a potato "crust", this one uses Low Carb tortillas.

2 Tbsp

Drizzle about 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a 12" cast iron or oven proof skillet. Brush around sides and bottom.
3
Cut tortilla's in quarters, brush one side with olive oil, place that side down in skillet overlapping to cover entire bottom of pan.
4
Spoon in cooked taco meat.
5
Add about half the grated cheese (as much or little as you like)
