Ingredients
4 slices bacon
4 ounces baby spinach, coarsely chopped (about 4 cups)
1 medium red bell pepper, diced (about 1 cup) or
1 cup thawed frozen roasted corn
6 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup Pace® Avocado Salsa- Mild (amount divided in recipe steps below)
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)
4 (6-inch) flour tortilla or corn tortillas, cut into 1-inch pieces (optional)
Directions
  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Cook the bacon in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain the bacon on paper towels and crumble the bacon. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Add the spinach and red pepper to the drippings in the skillet and cook over medium-high heat until the spinach is wilted. Remove the skillet from the heat. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
  2. Beat the eggs, milk, 1/2 cup salsa and cheese in a bowl. Stir in the spinach mixture, bacon and tortillas, if desired. Lightly grease a 2-quart casserole. Pour the egg mixture into the casserole.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until set. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with the remaining 1/2 cup salsa and sriracha and sour cream, if desired.
