Low Carb Breakfast in a Skillet Mexican Style

Lynn Socko


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.

How to Make Low Carb Breakfast in a Skillet Mexican Style


  • 1Cook taco meat. You could use chorizo instead.
  • 2Drizzle about 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a 12" cast iron or oven proof skillet. Brush around sides and bottom.
  • 3Cut tortilla's in quarters, brush one side with olive oil, place that side down in skillet overlapping to cover entire bottom of pan.
  • 4Spoon in cooked taco meat.
  • 5Add about half the grated cheese (as much or little as you like)
  • 6Break eggs into a bowl, add cilantro and whisk. Pour over cheese.
  • 7Top with remaining cheese and sliced jalapenos. Bake 350° for 25-30 until center is set. Allow to cool for at least 15 min. The cooler it is the easier it is to get out of the pan. This dish is delish cold as well.
