Move over scrambled eggs, there’s new eggs in town and they’re causing a stir! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good simple scramble but sometimes it’s good to shake things up a bit right guys? Ready in just 15 minutes this Keto Tex Mex Migas is one of the tastiest easy egg breakfasts there is. Just make sure to have some keto tortilla chips and you are good to go!

The crunch from the low carb nachos against the fluffy, flavoursome eggs really makes it the king of breakfasts. I love to serve this one for brunch on a Sunday. It’s great one for sharing.

Feel free to add avocado and hot sauce to serve, this makes it extra tasty. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
