  • 4 ounces chopped chorizo or other spicy sausage
  • 3/4 cup taco sauce
  • 1/2 cup broken tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • Guacamole, sour cream or other taco garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 and spray four individual oven-safe ramekins with cooking spray.
  2. Add sausage and taco sauce to medium skillet over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes until sauce is warmed.
  3. Whisk eggs in a medium bowl until thoroughly beaten and frothy.
  4. Stir chips into taco mixture. Divide taco sauce mixture among the four dishes, spreading until bottom of each dish is covered.
  5. Divide grated cheese among the four dishes, sprinkling to cover taco sauce.
  6. Pour egg mixture in even portions into each dish.
  7. Set ramekins on baking sheet and bake until golden and eggs are set, about 25 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting toothpick – it should come out clean.
  8. Cool for about 2-3 minutes, add garnishes as desired and serve.
