Okay, I am all about a good easy but comfort food that at the same time is also super flavorful. Using some simple and basic ingredients here that you'll just have to make this recipe even twice since it's simple and so flavorful.

An easy to make Nacho Salsa Breakfast Quiche using low carb tortillas, and of course some queso. In this occasion I kept this recipe dairy free by using my favorite dairy free queso brand and also some restaurant style salsa to add that extra Mexican vibe to this quiche.

About this Nacho Salsa Breakfast Quiche:

This recipe is super comforting and with a twist of a Mexican classic! Nachos are one of my Mexican favorite but thinking on all the process it takes to make them made me rethink the method in other to still enjoy the delicious taste and comfort without taking that long in the process.

I decided to transform it into a delicious and simple quiche... breakfast quiche and this is a game changer. Perfect for meal preps too!

A low carb, comforting and gluten free quiche, no gluten and high protein recipe. We are adding salsa (of course!), some queso, low carb corn tortillas and some eggs into this recipe.

The key to a delicious Mexican recipe is a good salsa so you can also try to make my own (recipe to my green salsa HERE) that is also greta for enchilada or this quiche recipe. Who doesn't love a good comforting meal, right?

What's in this Nacho Salsa Breakfast Quiche?

Well, besides the eggs and salsa we are using some low carb corn tortillas to add that nacho factor and of course, queso. In this occasion I'm using dairy free queso from Good Foods, brand that I have been loving for while.

Eggs are great protein option to add into your lifestyle! As a nutritionist I know that healthy eating should be sustainable and convenient without sacrificing any taste. Eggs are just a great source of protein, vitamin B12 that's is essential for healthy blood and red cells, omega-3 fatty acids and lutein.

Casserole recipes can be super versatile; this comforting recipe for example, these other of my own recipes:

Check for your ingredients! I believe that it's so important to get quality ingredients no matter what type of lifestyle you follow or live by. When it comes to animal products I recommend getting grass-fed, wild-caught (or sustainably raised) and pastured raised whenever it's possible; that also means that animals were more likely to be treated better.

Overall, these are the ingredients needed for this Nacho Salsa Breakfast Quiche:

This is a nutrient dense quiche! High quality protein, no additives, artificial ingredients. All simple and wholesome ingredients, this skillet are just perfect as a dinner or lunch? Pair this with some roasted veggies or guacamole for more flavor and nourishment.

Key Ingredients in this Recipe:

Okay, so what makes nachos what they are is the tortilla and the cheese, so yeah, we are using low carb tortillas, dairy free queso and some salsa; it can be green or red.... this time we are going chunky and restaurant style!

Of course eggs, the base of this quiche and that also adds some vitamins, nutrients and protein. Nachos are typically topped with some more veggies, beans, corn etc. You can have fun with this recipe but I kept it simple but just with the right enough flavor.

And for spices, adding real salt, pepper and garlic really amps up any taste and aroma to the recipes; a must and another sneaky way to get some micronutrients such as minerals from the sea salt.

The full instructions and ingredient list is listed below. This is just a super easy and flavorful recipe for you to enjoy and your body will love; source of fiber, nutrients and flavor!

Overall this recipe is:

  • Low Carb
