In my 20’s, I feel like I perfected the art of brunching.

Not the fancy kind full of stuffy restaurants and reservations- the bottomless bloody mary, red beers, and chicory coffee fueled endeavors to revive ourselves from a long night. I had a great group of friends who loved hanging out and reliving the night’s antics, tell stories, and joke around as long as we could the next morning over some deliciously spicy food.

It was the most amazing way to end a weekend before a long week back at work!

Being in Denver, that usually consisted of hearty skillets full of spicy chorizo, roasted green chiles, and cheesy piles of eggs- either all rolled up in a tortilla or not.

This breakfast is so delicious and easy - love the spicy chorizo, egg, and potatoes!

We love having friends over in the mornings when it’s easy for the kids to head outside and play- and a big hearty skillet meal is the perfect thing to serve up for a crowd!

This skillet is great on it’s own, or with fresh, hot tortillas.

You could even toss it over chips for chilaquiles, and douse it with green chile sauce, salsa, or sour cream! It is a delicious meal everyone loves, and is so easy to put your own special little spin on.

I hope you love it as much as we do!

  1. The recipe plugin is still not working on this page. If it’s being unusually difficult to fix, can you at least put the recipe in the post plain text until the module works? It might not be easily printable but at least it will exist.

  2. Umm, I think the recipe module either malfunctioned or is not compatible with Chrome?
    Nowhere on here is a recipe, and where I think it should be, it just says [amd-yrecipe-recipe:15]

    1. Ugh – yes, I had a recipe plugin malfunction (I use those because it makes recipes printable) – thanks for letting me know! I’ll get it back up later this afternoon.

      1. Thanks, it looks delicious, and I’d like to be able to see the full recipe so I can make sure I won’t forget anything at the store, or when making it.

  3. Love this. I love lazy Sunday breakfast skillet meals. Pinned & shared. Thanks for joining the Inspiration Spotlight party.

  4. Courtney, this looks marvelous! I would tuck into it anytime, breakfast, lunch or dinner~ maby “binner” my fave combination of breakfast for dinner~ Thanks for sharing this on our Throwback Thursday link party! I love it! I’ll be pinning, too, so be sure to follow us there, and see you next week! 🙂


  5. Hi Courtney! I really like the whole concept of a skillet brunch. I love brunch plus I feel like food in general tastes better if it’s made in a skillet. 😉 I am pinning this and cannot wait to try. Thanks for sharing! Btw my best friend in the 5th grade was named Courtney. I called her Courts for short. hehe.
