Southwest Chilaquiles Skillet Breakfast

The Outdoor Adventure 
Cookbook by Coleman
 (Oxmoor House, 2017, $22.99) 
  • 10 oz. fresh Mexican *chorizo, casing removed 
  • 1 medium-sized red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup diced poblano chile (from 1 small chile)
  • 1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion (from 1 small onion)
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 12 corn tortillas, coarsely chopped
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 2 oz. pepper Jack cheese, shredded (about 1⁄2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Hot sauce 
  • Sour cream 

*Mexican chorizo easily crumbles, unlike its Spanish counterpart, which is dried, cured and similar to salami.

Heat a camping stove to medium-high (about 375°-400°F). Preheat a 10-x-3-inch cast-iron fryer with a lid on the camping stove for 5 minutes. Add the chorizo, and cook, stirring to crumble, until cooked through, 6-8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the chorizo to drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Add the bell pepper, poblano, onions, salt and pepper to the fryer, and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are softened and lightly browned, 4-6 minutes. Stir in the chopped tortillas. 

Stir together the eggs, cheeses and milk in a medium bowl. Return the chorizo to the fryer, and stir to combine with the tortilla mixture. Pour the egg mixture over the top, and cook until the eggs just start to set on the bottom and outside edges of the fryer. Gently draw the eggs from the outside edges to the center, repeating the process until the mixture is very loosely set. Reduce the camping stove heat to low (about 275°-300°F). Cover the fryer, and cook until the eggs are set and the mixture is cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with the cilantro, and serve with the hot sauce and sour cream on the side. Serves 6.

Revision Brewing Company’s Narla Brown Ale

ABV: 6.5% IBU: 27

Revision is a new brewery located in Sparks, Nevada. Jeremy Warren, who started Auburn’s beloved Knee Deep Brewing Company, is the head brewer and one of the founders. Though specializing in hoppy IPAs and pale ales, their new brown ale—part of the Skunkwerks Experimental Series—is equally buzzworthy and perfect alongside slightly spicy dishes like this month’s Southwest Chilaquiles. The brew’s moderate hoppy flavor balances out the spice from the peppers and chiles, while the coffee undertones and notes of chocolate, caramel and citrus zest make it a perfect libation for breakfast.
