Learn this simple recipe that is perfect for your next family meal

ROANOKE – Mary Rapoport is back from the Virginia Egg Council with a delicious recipe for Taco Fritattas.  

Virginia is for Lovers* Taco Frittata

Virginian's love their tacos, and we've taken it up a notch to make a panful that feeds the family.  Instead of filling the taco shells, you make a base of a frittata and fill it with all the usual suspects for tacos:  chili, cheese, salsa, sour cream and you top it with corn chips. 


8 large eggs

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

1 10.5-oz. can of chili (no beans)

½ cup Mexican cheese blend

1 cup corn chips, broken

Serve with: salsa, sour cream, and cilantro


Preheat oven to 350°F.  If pan has a plastic handle, cover handle with foil.

Blend eggs in a medium bowl. 

Heat a 10" skillet with a non-stick coating over medium heat.  Melt butter or margarine, coating the skillet.

Pour in eggs and swing around to coat the bottom and bringing up the heat just a bit to medium high.  Gently bring eggs to center to help them cook.  Once nearly cooked, remove from heat and distribute chili on top then sprinkle on cheese.

**Bake in oven for 8 - 10 minutes or until eggs are fully cooked, chili heats and the cheese gets melty.

Remove from oven; sprinkle on the corn chips.  Top with salsa, sour cream and cilantro.

Cut into four wedges and enjoy.                                                                                                 Serves 4


*Virginia is for Lovers is a tourism slogan in Virginia it's on billboards, license plates, bumper stickers, etc.

**Alternately, cover the pan after adding the chili and cheese and cook on medium heat on the stove top, until eggs are done, chili heats and cheese is melty.
