So lately I have been LOVING tacos and nachos and all the Mexican inspired flavors. While I have vegetarian tacos, and pepper shell tacos, and oh yeah, those shrimpy tacos!! I realized I, for some reason, reserved those flavors for dinner.

But wait. What am I thinking? I’m missing out on an opportunity to infuse breakfast and brunch and lunch with those flavors I love.

So I set out. On a quest to make a delicious fiesta breakfast fun. But I didn’t stop there. You know what I love more than weeknight brunch? One skillet weekend brunch. Easy prep, easy clean up. Ya feel me?

You guys are going to love this Tex Mex breakfast hash with tasty little eggs nuzzled in there. It’s the perfect family meal, super fun for everyone, and did I mention tasty? Yup, I’m sure I mentioned tasty like five times.

TASTY. So let’s make some a Tex Mex breakfast skillet!!

Cut the sweet potato into 1/4 inch thick slices, then cut each slice in fourths. 

Sauté the sweet potato, onion, bell pepper, and sausage in a few tablespoons of avocado oil until softened, about 7 minutes. I used an already cooked chicken sausage so I just browned it a bit and took it along for the skillet ride. You can also use ground meat, chicken, any type of meat you like, or leave it out completely!

Add the taco seasoning and continue to sauté until golden brown, another 5 minutes or so. 

Use a wooden spoon to make little divots in the Tex Mex veggie hash. I made about 4 divots. Crack eggs into those divots and cook for another 3 – 4 minutes. Then, transfer the entire skillet to you oven and turn the broiler on high. Broil for about 2 – 3 minutes until the clear part of the egg is no longer translucent. 

Top with black beans, sliced avocado, salsa, and cilantro.
