Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 4 servings
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • ¼ onion, diced
  • ½ bell pepper, diced
  • Two 4 oz. cans of hot diced green chiles
  • 4 handfuls of spinach
  • 4 eggs, whisked (you can totally double this!)
  • salt and pepper
  • Avocado, for serving
  1. In a large skillet, fry 8 slices of bacon until crisp. Remove from the pan and let cool on some paper towels. Drain all but 2 Tbsp. of the bacon grease from the skillet.
  2. Over medium-low heat, sautée the onions and bell peppers in the bacon grease for ~5 minutes.
  3. Add in the two cans of green chiles, juices and all, and stir. Now add in the spinach and stir, (the liquid from the chiles will help the spinach wilt).
  4. Chop the bacon into bite-sized bits.
  5. After a couple minutes, when the spinach is wilted, you can add the bacon bits and the whisked eggs.
  6. Give everything a good sprinkle of salt and pepper, (heavier on the pepper than salt, you already have salty bacon!).
  7. Stir until the eggs are your desired done-ness.
  8. Serve with avocado, hot sauce, and some potatoes on the side!
