Actually a dish that we eat for any meal of the day, KETO TEX MEX BREAKFAST SKILLET are so easy and have protein, starch, veggies and healthy fat all in one pan. One of our favorites, this Tex Mex breakfast skillet has so much flavor.
Make sure that you check the label on your bacon and ham to keep this dish Whole 30 compliant. Applegate and Natural Ranchers have some, it is a lot easier to find compliant bacon these days. You can also use a compliant sausage if you can’t find ham that you like.
By using the meat and veggies, make this dish your own that you have in the fridge and pantry. You could use sausage, kale, squash etc. When I am trying to clean out the fridge before I go grocery shopping, I love to make a dish like this.
