A while back I was on my way to a hair appointment. I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat for several hours and my stomach was growling, so I swung thru a nearby Starbucks and got a breakfast item that they called a tomatillo steak and egg wrap. I was delicious! It was this item that inspired these enchiladas.
La Tortilla Factory
The base of this recipe are La Tortilla Factory non-GMO Gluten Free tortillas. They are made with cassava flour which makes them not only delicious but a perfect companion to this breakfast. La Tortilla has been around for 40 years and has always used better ingredients to make their products extra yummy. They have even revamped their hand made style tortillas to be non-GMO. I especially like their low carb non-GMO tortillas.
When I’m making tacos or fajitas my go-to are the La Tortilla Factory hand made style tortillas. You really can’t beat the taste, and the quality of ingredients. When they say hand made style – they aren’t kidding! They taste just like you made them at home.
Instant Pot Tomatillo Steak
For tender, delicious steak I used my instant pot. Not only does it make your meats tender, but it is so darn fast! I threw stew meat in with some tomatillo salsa and diced green chilis for 35 minutes and it came out falling apart. Stew meat is known for being tough, yet the pressure cooker turned it into perfect steak.
I also used my perfect scrambled eggs for this recipe. The combination of the two proteins, melty cheese, and tomatillo sauce is to die for.
On the topic of cheese – you must use Jack Cheese! There is something about pairing Jack Cheese with green enchilada sauce that is incredibly delicious. I always steer clear of canned red enchilada sauce, but when it comes to green – I really like it. You can make your own green sauce if you like, or skip that step and go with the store bought.
Lastly I added some cherry tomatoes to the top for a burst of flavor.
And if I do say so – these enchiladas know the Starbucks wrap out of the park. Don’t insist enchiladas are only a dinner food – they are amazing for breakfast too!
A delicious, fun and easy breakfast recipe.
