I know the Super Bowl is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try something fun another day of the year.
Obviously, the Denver Broncos played in the Big Game this year (as of writing deadline time, outcome undetermined). I was searching for foods that would reflect both teams and, frankly, having a hard time with Denver.
By their own admission, the only things Denverites could claim were the omelet and game meats.
I’ve had the Denver omelet 9 million times. What kind of fun appetizer food is that?
However, I thought those would taste good on nachos (borrowing from a local restaurant breakfast favorite, chorizo breakfast nachos).
The Denver Omelet Nachos were born. We’ve never eaten them for breakfast, but we did partake for dinner.
Denver Omelet Nachos
8 cups tortilla chips
6 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups ham, diced
2 large green bell peppers, diced
1 large onion, diced
3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Sautee peppers and onions in a nonstick skillet sprayed with nonstick spray until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ham; stir until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and scramble until soft-set.
Place tortilla chips on a large baking sheet. Cover with egg mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
Preheat broiler to high.
Place under broiler until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
