Servings: 6 people


  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 1 pound pork breakfast sausage
  • 3 cups marbled cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup red onion finely diced
  • 1 medium jalapeno sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the grill. Preheat your grill or oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Assemble the nachos. In a 12-inch cast iron skillet, spread out half the bag of tortilla chips. Next, evenly distribute half of the sausage, half of the red onions, and half of the jalapeno slices on top of the chips. Top with 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layers again with the remaining half of the ingredients.
  • Add the eggs. Use your hands to create 6 small pockets in the top layer of cheese. Carefully crack one egg into each of the wells of cheese you just created. Season the eggs with the salt and pepper.
  • Cook the nachos. Transfer the skillet to your oven or grill and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the whites are just set and the yolks are still runny.
  • Add desired toppings and serve warm. Top with sour cream, cilantro, and any other desired toppings, and serve while still warm.
