Ello’ loves! It’s been a while, I know. I have decided, however, that I am not going to apologize for it like I usually do. It’s certainly not like I’ve been cooking and hiding it from you. Life has been super crazy busy and I haven’t had any free time (a.k.a Blog Time) until very recently.
So what HAVE I been doing, then? I’m so glad you asked!
I am no longer an waitress.
I am no longer a barista.
I am a PRODUCTION ASSISTANT…*cheers*
Yes, that’s right. I got a job as a production assistant/copy editor for a lovely little publishing company just a few minutes from where I live and I couldn’t be happier!
Am I still going to school for culinary? You bet your sweet bottom I am. Class two nights a week. Work five days a week. WEEKENDS OFF! It’s absolutely insane to me to sleep in on a Sunday but I am loving every second of it.
What I love most about sleeping in, and this shouldn’t come as a surprise to you, is waking up to BRUNCH!
Om nom nom nom nom nom!

Anywho, this weekend was one of the first weekends I’ve had off with NOTHING to do in I can’t even tell you how long. I knew I had to make something delicious – something egg-ceptional if ya know what I mean.
Only one egg?
But but but… how can I make something delicious with JUST ONE EGG?!?!
I’ve got it!!!
How does this sound?
One perfectly cooked sunny-side up egg on top of two perfectly toasted corn tortillas withy melty sharp cheddar cheese served with a combination of sweet red bell peppers and smokey chipotle chicken sausage??? Do you picture something like this?
I can’t lie to you guys. This was awesome. Part of me wishes I had some black beans and some cilantro to throw into the mix, but like I said, my refrigerator was pretty barren, and this was delicious either way. I hope if you decide to make it that you enjoy, too!
Chipotle Sausage Hash
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp butter
- 1 chipotle chicken sausage, diced
- 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
- 2 corn tortillas
- 2 tablespoons extra sharp cheddar cheese
- Scallions (Optional)
Begin by placing the two tortillas on a sheet pan and top with cheese. Place in 350 degree oven until cheese melts and tortillas are toasty.
Meanwhile, heat the sausage and peppers in a small skillet until brown.
For the perfect sunny side up egg – heat a small skillet over low heat for five minutes and melt butter. Crack your egg into a separate bowl and gently slide into the pan. Cover and let cook for about two minutes, until the whites are almost completely set. Remove cover and add 1 tsp of water and quickly replace the cover. Let cook two minutes more until the whites set completely.
Top tortillas with the sausage and peppers, egg, and scallions.
