Breakfast Taco Bites

  • About 36 tortilla chip scoops
  • 3 breakfast sausage links
  • ½-3/4 cup finely chopped red pepper
  • 3 slices bacon, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup salsa (Copy)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line tortilla chip scoops on a baking sheet. Set aside. *See note for make ahead directions.
  2. In a large frying pan, add the eggs, milk and salt. Cook, scrambling, over medium heat until completely cooked. Remove from the pan and place in a medium bowl.
  3. Remove sausage from links and scramble fry in the pan, breaking up with a spatula as the sausage cooks. Fry over medium heat until golden brown. Add peppers and cook 1-2 minutes until peppers are tender crisp. Remove from the pan and add to the eggs in the bowl.
  4. Add the bacon to the pan and cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and add to the eggs in the bowl.
  5. Stir in 1 cup of cheese (this works best when egg mixture is luke warm and not hot, because otherwise the cheese will be one glob and not disperse throughout).
  6. Spoon egg mixture into tortilla chip scoops and top with remaining ½ cup cheese. Bake for 8-10 minutes until hot and cheese is melted.
  7. Top with salsa as desired.
