Happy World Egg Day!  Since 1996, the second Friday in October has become a day to celebrate (and eat, of course) this delicious breakfast food – maybe even giving you an excuse to cook them for lunch and dinner too.  Thank you to Davidson’s Safest Choice® for partnering with me to bring you this delicious recipe!

At my house, we eat eggs for breakfast nearly every morning.

Eggs are easy to make and the protein they provide is a much better way to start the day than most other breakfast foods.  Pancakes and cereal may be delicious, but the mid-morning crash is not a great way to start a work or school day – starting the day with protein helps everyone stay more focused and full throughout the day.   (I even let my 6th grader make his own eggs in the morning.  He leaves the stovetop a mess and his eggs can be kinda crunchy, lol, but I think it goes a long way in helping him learn to do things on his own.)

There was no way I could let World Egg Day pass by without celebrating eggs (aka eating eggs, lol).

We live in South Central Texas, and tex-mex style dishes make an appearance on the menu multiple times a week, so it only made sense to share this Tex-Mex Breakfast Skillet.  It is simple, quick and oh-so-yummy!  (Want more egg recipes? Check out all my egg-based dishes here.)

I love my egg yolks a bit runny, but I’ve always been a bit concerned about feeding undercooked eggs to my family– thankfully, that’s one issue I don’t need to worry about anymore.

If you’re a fan if tex-mex style dishes like we are, this recipe is definitely a keeper.  I can see this breakfast skillet becoming a regular favorite in our house!  T

he flavors of the tomatoes, diced green chiles and beans really compliment each other and the eggs and since I used canned refried beans and canned tomatoes w/ diced green chilis, the dish came together in less than 15 minutes. (Plus, it’s made with pantry staples that you probably always have on hand.)

  1. Made this recipe this morning. My husband and I LOVED it. I’ve never made a breakfast skillet like this. I overcooked the eggs a little but they were still great (and because they were overcooked, our 2 year old got to enjoy some too and gobbled it up!) We served it over toast. Thanks for the great recipe! I’ve shared it already with some friends and family

  2. Hi, this looks yummy, I’m just wondering if anyone has aever tried this in a crockpot? I’m trying to free up my oven, for a Christmas brunch.

    1. I bet this would be great in a crock pot. I have not tried it, but my thought would be to: mix beans, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and cumin add to crock pot and heat for 2 hours on low. Lift crock pot lid and using back of spoon, make 4 depressions in bean mixture and crack eggs into depressions. Re-cover and cook on heat until the whites are set and yolks are cooked to desired doneness. (15 minutes for runny yolks, 20 minutes for firmer yolks. ) If you try it, please come back and share your results!

  3. My husband loves egg breakfasts! This is perfect for him!

  4. My weekend breakfast is sorted! This looks amazing! Can’t wait to give it a try!

  5. Yum! I love savory breakfasts, and this one looks great!

  6. This is exactly the kind of breakfast my husband chooses, whenever possible. I admit I hadn’t thought of making it at home, but this really does look easy enough. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I love these kids of flavors w/ breakfast. I’m forever making breakfast burritos and quesadillas etc. I like that breakfast has turned into a skillet meal – easy clean up. Oh and I agree, if they are willing to cook let them. My 7 year old makes bacon and scrambled eggs on his own and even though he “cleans” up after, I spend double the time cleaning up but there is just something about a kid cooking….. 🙂
