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.
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!
