Do you know what one of my favorite things to have for dinner is?  Breakfast! 

In my opinion, breakfast is without a doubt the best meal of the day, there are a myriad a choices from sweet to savory to healthy to not.  However, whenever I prepare it for dinner, it just tastes that.much.better.

It’s the simple pleasures in life.

Here’s my true confession though, my breakfast for dinner habit generally consists of eggs, some sort of meat (bacon, duh), a bag of potato chips and it happens when I’m cooking alone on a weeknight.  If hubby is going out for the night, and I’ve come home after a long day of work, then a work out, I want a quick dinner and I return to bachelorette days.  

After one of those long days, I was picking up my needed breakfast for dinner items and had an epiphany – I needed to make breakfast nachos!  Tortillas chips smothered with cheese, topped with chorizo, avocado, tomatoes and finished with a fried egg.  It was the perfect meal.

The best part? This is totally customizable, don’t like chorizo? Use a different meat? Don’t eat meat? Leave it out.  Like things spicy? Add some jalapeños.  You clearly get the point.

    I totally agree with you… breakfast for dinner is the best thing ever. I have a major thing for eggs and southwest flavours together, so these nachos? Definitely screaming my name. Too bad I can’t run home and make some right now. 🙂

    Susan, this makes me want to punch my own face from excitement. Ohmahgah breakfast nachos is the best idea ever! Every time my husband is out for dinner, I eat toast with scrambled eggs and cheese. No joke, every.single.time. I love eating breakfast for dinner but I don’t have the energy to go all out and make pancakes or sumpin fancy like that. Nachos though, I think I could pull off.
