This healthy Mexican nourish bowl is super easy to make and packed full of flavour. Low in carbs and high in healthy fats to keep you fuller for longer and your insulin levels stable.

I like to use a combination of chorizo and Toulouse sausages but feel free to use your favourites. The chorizo is important though if you want to keep the Mexican flavour. Topped with heart healthy avocado, full fat sour cream and the perfect poached egg.

It’s the ultimate low-carb brunch recipe for a lazy Sunday but thanks to the right balance of carbs, protein and healthy fats it can be enjoyed from breakfast, brunch, lunch to dinner.

You don’t have to make the keto tortilla chips but they add a delicious crunch to dip into that runny egg! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Instructions

  1. Remove the casing from the Italian sausage and chorizo. Fry the meat in a dry, non-stick pan, for 5 minutes breaking it up as you fry so it resembles a mince consistency, until browned.

  2. Add the onion, paprika and jalapeño and fry on a medium / low heat for 6 – 8 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, lime, coconut aminos and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss with the tomatoes, oregano, red pepper and spring onion to make a quick salsa.

  4. Poach the eggs by filling a saucepan full of boiling water from the kettle. Bring to a light simmer over a medium heat and season with salt.
  5. Crack each egg into a cup one at a time. Swirl the water gently with a spoon in a circular direction and carefully pour the egg into the water. Cook for 3 (soft) - 5 minutes (hard). Remove with a slotted spoon and place on kitchen paper to drain.
