Taquito Brunch Skillet

This recipe came out of "In the Kitchen: The Costco Way," which Costco was handing out for free the day after Thanksgiving. I made it for lunch today, and it was SO good! We had spicy taquitos in the freezer, so I figured it was a bit much for the kids, so they got good old scrambled eggs instead. And we all had some of the cinnamon muffins posted below.

2 Tbl olive oil or butter
2 cups potatoes, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
1 cup diced onions
10 taquitos, thawed and diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup salsa (Since we had spicy taquitos I doubled the tomatoes and skipped the salsa)
1/2 cup diced celery
1/4 cup olives (I skipped)
2 eggs
1 cup shredded cheese (calls for Mexican blend, I just used cheddar)

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and onions and fry until potatoes are soft and onions translucent. (The recipe said 2 minutes, but it took MUCH longer for my potatoes to cook.)

Add diced taquitos, celery, salsa, tomatoes and olives. Cook until heated through.

Break eggs into a bowl and wisk. Add cheese and stir. Pour mixture into skillet.

Cook until eggs are done and serve immediately.

Garnish with fried onions or bacon bits or cilantro if desired.
