The Best Thing To Ever Happen To Mornings: Breakfast Nachos

Just let this happen.
Put an egg on absolutely anything and call it breakfast. That means putting an egg on top of this melty mixture of warm corn chips, cheese, black beans, fresh corn, and salsa makes a totally legit breakfast.
It’s like a breakfast burrito, but more crunchy. It’s like breakfast tacos, but more crunchy. It’s like eggs over-easy, on top of a crazy amount of crunchy chips. I promise that this breakfast will inspire at least 14 minutes of absolute breakfast-table silence...aside from the crunching (you totally knew I was going to say that).
Breakfast Nachos
It feels silly to write a recipe for nachos. The combinations and amounts are more about how hungry you are, and how much you feel like sharing. Here are the essentials.
Corn tortilla chips
Sharp cheddar cheese and/or jack cheese, shredded
One can drained black or pinto beans
Shredded chicken or beef
Fresh corn sliced from the cob
Sliced, ripe avocado
Eggs over-easy
1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
2. Layer corn chips across the sheet. Sprinkle cheese, beans, meat, and fresh corn on top.
3. Place in the oven and heat through until everything is warm and cheese is melted, about 7 minutes.
4. While nachos are in the oven, cook eggs over-easy in a nonstick pan. When nachos are melted and still warm, slide eggs onto nachos. Top with salsa and avocado. Serve immediately.
