Kicked Up Breakfast Nachos with Fluffy Eggs, Avocado Cream & Roasted Peppers

Are you all dying for a vacation? Like a real one…at a spa, on the beach at a she-she-la-la place? Me too. So here’s the thing, 20 bloggers were asked by Smart Balance to participate in their Smart Balance Blogger Recipe Challenge

Basically, Smart Balance wanted us to create a recipe using one of their products (but I used 5) in a dish. The blogger with the most likes/votes wins the Grand Prize, a trip for two to Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach, Florida.


BUT WAIT…if I win, I also get to give one of these trips to YOU, YOU, YOU! The loyal people who come here everyday and listen to me talk…about nothing. 

Can’t you see us now, on the beach in Miami…sipping drinks, eating shrimp…well, don’t worry, we won’t be there together (I won’t cramp your style like that) but we’ll Instagram each other like we were. K.

So I need your vote, because that would be awesome, and then we could party in the city where the heat is on! I seriously love that Will Smith song. And we are already a day behind, so we need to catch up folks. GO VOTE!

Here are the prize package details of YOUR vacation:

  • Round-trip airfare to Miami International Airport (MIA) from anywhere in the U.S.
  • Transportation to and from MIA to Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa Miami Beach
  • Two nights in a one-bedroom suite at Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa Miami Beach
  • A $500 resort credit for spa treatments & dining

So what do you think, go vote, so we can both hang in Miami. (And just so you know, you can’t vote from a mobile phone, it just doesn’t work.)

These mini peppers are my faves, I’m so glad they are a staple in the grocery stores. When roasted they are sweet and make any dish “pop” with flavor.

A little bit of oil will help roast these to perfection.

Have you ever used this cooking spray? I have to say it has the BEST sprayer that kind of fans out. I’m never giving it up.

Roasted to perfection.

Kicked Up Breakfast Nachos with Fluffy Eggs, Avocado Cream & Roasted Peppers

Recipe from: Created by Noble Pig | Serves: 6

Ingredients

For the peppers:

  • 8 mini peppers, seeded and cut into rings
  • 2 jalapeno pepper seeded and cut into rings
  • 1 Tablespoon Smart Balance Cooking Oil
  • Smart balance Non-Stick Cooking Spray

For the Avocado Cream:

  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, top half only, stems discarded
  • 2 avocados, seeded and quartered
  • 1/4 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup Smart Balance Omega Plus Light Mayonnaise Dressing
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Smart Balance Cooking Oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the eggs:

  • 1/2 pound ground breakfast sausage
  • 6 Smart Balance Omega-3 Grade A Natural Large Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded Manchego cheese

Extras

  • 1 (15 oz) bag tortilla chips
  • cilantro leaves for garnish
  • fresh salsa

Directions

  • For the peppers, preheat oven to 450o F. Place pepper and jalapeno rings in a bowl and toss with oil. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and place pepper rings on sheet, do not overlap them. Roast peppers about 10-12 minutes or until soft. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • For the avocado cream, place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If it is too thick, add more chicken stock until desired consistency is reached.
  • For the eggs, brown sausage over medium heat until cooked through. Add eggs and scramble with sausage until fluffy. Remove pan from heat and stir in cheese.
  • To assemble nachos, place a layer of tortilla chips on a large platter. Drizzle avocado cream over chips, followed by a layer of sausage-egg-cheese mixture. Scatter with half of the pepper rings. Repeat. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves and serve with fresh salsa on the side.
