There’s a trend taking place in our country. One that you will only witness if you eat out for breakfast… Breakfast salads.

That’s right, salad meant to be eaten in the morning hours.

If you’ve never had a salad for breakfast, it’s about time. Breakfast salads are all the rage right now in hip diners across America.

In fact, most of my favorite breakfast spots offer a breakfast salad of some sort.

Love this Mexican Breakfast Salad |

I’ve made breakfast salads at home quite a few times. My kids love this version with cinnamon toast croutons and maple syrup dressing. However I prefer a slightly more savory breakfast salad. One with salsa and spicy chorizo!

This Mexican Breakfast Salad offers all the flavor and appeal of classic huevos rancheros, yet with a lot more veggies.

Old El Paso

I started by making crunchy tortilla wedges with Old El Paso Flour Tortillas brushed with a touch of butter and seasoned with ground cumin and garlic salt.

Placed in the oven, the tortilla wedges turn into golden crispy chips that offer a heck of a lot of appeal to the salad, without going overboard on the carbs.

Then I loaded a bed of fresh chopped lettuce with tomatoes, black beans, avocado slices, cooked chorizo, and queso fresco.

At this point you can add warm eggs on top, cooked any way you like. Runny sunny-side up eggs are a great choice…

Then add in some of the crunchy tortilla wedges, and top with Old El Paso Fresh Salsa found in the produce department of the grocery store!

If you don’t like sunny-side up eggs, go with scrambled eggs instead.

AWESOME Mexican Breakfast Salad |

Either way, this Mexican Breakfast Salad is so ridiculously delicious!

Full of contrasting flavors, tons of texture, and piles of healthy raw veggies. You’ll get your vegetable quota taken care of first thing in the morning, so you can go about your day with a skip in your step.

    Haven’t had a breakfast salad just yet. Not sure I like the idea but if you have salad for breakfast think about all of those veggies you are getting first thing. Seems like a great way to start the day.
