Oh, hello skillet of my dreams.

Question: when you’re down to nacho, how do you prepare them? Confession: when I was a small child slash college student, I stuck chips on a plate, bombarded them with shredded cheese, and nuked them in the microwave, guilty.as.charged. I decided recently to do a one-pan sort of situation, cooking whatever meat or veggie I’m nachoing (in this particular crunch fest: sweet potato) in a cast iron skillet before loading up said cast iron skillet with all the nachoables.

These nachos are locked and loaded with some of my favorite add-ins, including sweet potato home fries, black beans, avocado, red onion and green onion, shredded cheese and queso fresco, salsa, and sunny side up eggs. Let’s marinate on the sunny side up egg thing. It works, just trust. Simply toss out some forks when you serve up these ‘chos and get to yolk-poking.

In spite of the fact that these ravishing nachos are engulfed in breakfast-y huevos rancheros  flair, I know us well enough to know we’re probably making these for dinner. And for breakfast…on the weekend, that is. I realized these facts mid-nacho prep, mostly because a.) I was fantasizing about eating them for dinner, and b.) this recipe requires about 18 more steps than we’re willing to put out on an average weekday morning. Case in point: #NachosForLife.

True story – I shop regularly at Safeway, which is in walking distance of my house. Whenever possible, I buy organic with the caveat that I do so on a budget, and the O Organics® brand at Safeway has me covered. From fruit, vegetable, herbs, dairy, meats, snacks, and even kombucha, O Organics makes over 300 perishable and non-perishable organic items available exclusively at Safeway stores in Northern Nevada and California. In addition to their extensive product line, this year, more than 100 new items will be added to the O Organics line, so that there are even more affordable USDA-certified organic options to choose from.

I find the products to be of excellent quality at a super reasonable price, making choosing organic an easy, healthy choice. I used O Organics Blue Corn Tortilla Chips and Mild Salsa in order to compose these nachos. You can check out O Organics at your local Safeway and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

I’m thinking these nachos are perfect for your…

  • Football gatherings
  • Weeknight dinner
  • Weekend breakfast or brunch
  • Late night party snack

You can change up these nachos to your heart’s desire. For instance, you can..

  • Add grilled steak, rotisserie chicken, bacon, sausage, or chorizo
  • Drizzle with chipotle sour cream sauce
  • Use a hot (rather than mild) salsa, and/or add a drizzle of hot sauce
  • Make personal-sized nachos by using several mini cast iron skillets, rather than one large one

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 large sweet potato diced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 heaping handfuls O Organics Blue Corn Chips
  • 1 cup black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheese of choice*
  • 1/3 cup queso fresco cheese crumbled
  • 3 eggs sunny side up

For Serving:

  • ½ avocado peeled and diced
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • ¼ cup red onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped, optional
  • 1/4 cup O Organics Mild Salsa

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute 3 minutes, until onion begins to soften. Add the chopped sweet potato and cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potato is golden-brown and cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes. Note: You can cover the skillet and reduce the heat to medium if your sweet potato is taking too long to cook.Transfer the sweet potatoes to a bowl.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Add the chips to the cast iron skillet, followed by the cooked sweet potato, black beans, shredded cheese, and queso fresco. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese has melted, about 10 minutes. While the nachos are baking, cook 3 eggs on the stovetop to desired doneness.
  4. Remove nachos from the oven and add the avocado, green onion, red onion, fresh cilantro, and salsa. Serve with sunnyside up eggs on top with additional salsa for dipping.

    I’m fantasizing about having these for dinner and it’s only 10am! That is one seriously epic combo for nachos. I’m confident I could eat the whole skillet to myself. And I love that it includes O Organics chips and salsa. I was so impressed when I first moved west and discovered that Safeway had an entire line of organic products. Awesome!
