Sweet Potato Blue Corn Breakfast Enchiladas


‎"I disregard the proportions, the measures,

the tempo of the ordinary world..."

~anais nin

I like to go against the flow.
Mix it up.
Live Fearlessly.
Sometimes I don't wear matching socks.
on purpose.

so what does one like me do to cozy up
when the chill of a brisk fall morning
has somehow seeped into the very marrow of my bones?

a steaming cup of french roast.
extra cream.
a dash of cinnamon.
and this...
Sweet Potato & Fontina Cheese
Blue Corn Breakfast Enchiladas
Smothered in Green Chile
with an Egg on Top

2 Blue Corn Tortillas
4 Tbsp of Canola Oil
1 Tbsp of Butter
4 Tbsp of Fontina Cheese, Shredded
1 Sweet Potato, cooked & shredded
1/4 cup of green chile sauce *you may used a canned version, or, use my recipe which I will be posting next week!
1 egg, fried over easy/medium
salt to taste
a pinch of cilantro and 1 Tbsp of diced tomatoes for garnish

Fry the tortillas in 3 Tbsp of oil, when they start to bubble on one side, turn over until it bubbles and remove promptly
lay on a plate with paper towel to drain
fry the cooked shredded sweet potato to crisp on both sides in the remaining 1 Tbsp of oil and 1 Tbsp of butter, as you would hash browns, salt to taste
take 2 Tbsp of fontina cheese with 2 Tbsp of Sweet Potato hash and roll up in each tortilla
smother with green chile sauce
sprinkle additional fontina cheese on top
heat in oven or microwave to melt cheese
fry an egg to over easy/medium and lay on top of enchiladas
garnish with a pinch of cilantro and diced tomato

and now....the winner of The Vintage Pearl $25 gift certificate is......

  1. This sounds lovely. Guess I'll give it a try this weekend. :) I love green chile sauce!

  2. I love a good breakfast like this! Who says enchiladas are strictly for dinner?!?

  3. Yum, yum yum! This is one of my all time favorite breakfasts; I love burritos made up for the morning! Yours looks absolutely divine.

  4. Wow, now that's a breakfast...I love Fontina, but do not see many people using it. These sound fantastic :)

  5. This looks like such a cool breakfast! I love the color of the blue corn tortillas. Yum!!

  6. Oh my gosh! YUM! I see that green chile sauce and I go bonkers! Girl, that is my kind of breakfast...genius!

  7. OMG this looks soooo good. I can't believe how hungry I am for breakfast now (and it's Monday Night Football)! I found you on SITS. Nice to "meet" you :)

  8. Oh...these sound so good! You had me at sweet potato enchiladas, but I love that you stuffed them with eggs as well! Yummy! :)

  9. ::sigh:: You had me at French roast. C'mon over with your breakfast and I'll provide the coffee. We'll sit and chat for a few hours. The enchiladas look fantastic.

  10. This sounds divine! Not only fun to eat but to make as well. I'm saving this recipe for sure! :)

  11. Oh, my mouth is watering by the vision of this, sweet potato blue corn enchiladaaaaa! I would eat this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner...make that "and" dinner! :) Yum!

  12. Thank you so much for picking me as your winner of the gift certificate. I am so excited. I love jewelry but would never buy it for myself. What a wonderful surprise. Thank you again.

    As for your morning treat, I will skip the French roast and have a hot chocolate with a dash of cinnamon.


  13. I thanked you properly on my blog today.


  14. What a gorgeous and flavorful breakfast!

  15. Different colored socks and a delicious breakfast?

    I'm in!

  16. So, how much would you charge to come to Kentucky and cook that breakfast for me?

    It looks delish! I'm enjoying the food and photography here - beautiful!

  17. Looks yummy!

  18. I don't know what I like better the recipe, or the writing, what a great combo, I'm going to try this with flour tortillas :)))

  19. Don't you just love Anais Nin? Thank you for sharing that quote...and for sharing this delightful way to start a leisurely fall day! I adore sweet potatoes, and I could eat them breakfast, lunch and dinner! Your kind words on my blog meant so much to me. You truly have a beautiful soul. Thank you for your immense kindness.

  20. Yum! This looks like the perfect way to shake up the work week...just what I need when the weekend is on the horizon, but just not there yet. Setting my alarm a few minutes early and crossing my fingers that I actually manage to drag my butt out of bed tomorrow morning to make this :) Thank you!

  21. Sweet potato hash with fontina? Smothered in green chile sauce? I'm there!

  22. Oh goodness. This is a fantastic breakfast. I love the flavors. Happy I came across your lovely blog:) have a great weekend:)
