Author Lisa


  • ½ lb bacon
  • 2 medium potatoes shredded
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 jalapeno thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ tsp butter
  • 1 to mato diced
  • ½ cup jack cheese
  • green salsa I used herdez
  • tortilla chips I used blue corn tortilla chips


  1. In a large skillet cook bacon.
  2. While bacon is cooking, using a cheese grater* shred two potatoes. I like to wash the potatoes, dry them and then with the skin on grate them.

  3. When the bacon is done, remove from pan and set on a paper towel-lined plate.

  4. Using the same skillet, put a ¼ cup of the bacon grease, or another oil for frying in the skillet and get it warm. Then add the shredded potatoes and garlic salt, salt and pepper. I like to sprinkle enough garlic powder on to cover the potatoes and then add a little salt and pepper. Add as much or as little of the seasonings as you want!

  5. Cooke the potatoes until they are nice and browned, flipping occasionally about 10-15 minutes. When done, set aside.

  6. While the skillet is still warm add the eggs and scramble. You will probably need to put the skillet back on med/high heat to finish cooking the eggs. If you don’t stir right away they eggs will turn into fried eggs.
  7. When the eggs are done, set aside and cut your jalapeno into thin slices. Then add the butter to the skillet along with the jalapeno slices and fry until soft and slightly blackened.*
  8. Dice your tomato and cut the bacon into small pieces.
  9. To assemble: Add a handful of chips to a bowl, top with eggs, jalapenos, potatoes, tomatoes, bacon and shredded cheese. Finish off with a healthy topping of green salsa.
  10. 10. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*To make shredding potatoes easier; use your food processor and the grater blade.
*Frying the jalapenos can be skipped, but do taste really yummy. If you do fry them make sure your kitchen is well ventilated and maybe have a fan on or a window open because the capsaicin in the pepper, when heated, can make it hard to breathe.
