Southwestern Chilaquile Frittata
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 zucchini, thinly sliced into rounds
1 cup corn tortilla chips, lightly crushed
1 dozen eggs
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup Wholly Salsa Medium dip, plus extra to serve
1/2 cup manchego cheese, shredded
Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste
3 scallions, chopped, to serve
Wholly Guacamole Homestyle dip, to serve
Sour cream, to serve
Preheat oven to 350F.
Preheat a 9-inch cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet over medium
heat. Add olive oil and swirl to coat the surface of the pan. Add onions,
season with salt and pepper and cook until soft and golden brown. Add
the zucchini and tortilla chips and cook another 2 minutes until both have
softened. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl whisk together eggs, water, Wholly Salsa Medium
dip, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture into the skillet and stir to evenly
distribute the vegetables and tortilla chips. Sprinkle the manchego cheese
over the egg mixture and place in oven to bake for 25-30 minutes, or until
the eggs set, the frittata puffs and turns golden brown. Remove from the
oven, slice and serve with scallions, Wholly Guacamole Homestyle dip,
Wholly Salsa Medium dip and sour cream on the side.
