Quick-Pickled Red Onions:

  • cup rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon white sugar

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion


  • 1 pound mild breakfast sausage

  • 1 (4 ounce) can Ortega® Diced Green Chiles, drained

  • 2 (8 ounce) bottles Ortega® Mild Taco Sauce

  • ½ cup water

  • 2 (5.8 ounce) packages Ortega® Yellow Corn Taco Shells (about 24 taco shells total), broken into pieces

  • 6 large eggs

  • ¾ cup shredded white Cheddar cheese

Optional Toppings:

  • 2 tomatoes, diced (Optional)

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced radishes (Optional)


  1. In a glass jar, combine rice wine vinegar, water, salt, and sugar. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir well to dissolve sugar and salt. Add red onion. Cover and let cool to room temperature.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Heat a 12-inch oven-proof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking apart into bite-sized pieces with a wooden spoon, until browned all over and no longer pink, about 8 minutes.

  4. Add diced green chiles, taco sauce, water, and crunchy taco shell pieces. Stir well to combine. Remove skillet from heat.

  5. Make 6 wells, spaced evenly apart, in the tortilla mixture. Add 1 egg to each well. Top skillet with Cheddar cheese.

  6. Bake uncovered for 14 to 17 minutes, until whites around egg yolks are set. Serve immediately with toppings, as desired.
