Dinner can get real boring, real quick and that's why I like to switch things up as much as possible. One way is to make breakfast for dinner. I love it because my kids think of it as an extra treat. I love it, because it's super easy to make. You almost always have all of your ingredients on hand. Take this south of the boarder twist on breakfast with a recipe for Country Egg Tortilla Cups:

4  Old El Paso® flour tortillas (6 inches in diameter) Cooking spray

2  cups frozen southern-style hash brown potatoes

1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

3 eggs or 1 cup fat-free cholesterol-free egg product

1/4 cup milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 ounces)

1/4 cup sour cream

Old El Paso® salsa (any variety), if desired

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Turn four 6-ounce custard cups upside down onto cookie sheet. Spray both sides of each tortilla lightly with cooking spray. Place tortilla over each cup, gently pressing edges toward cup. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove tortillas from cups; place upright on serving plates.
  • 2 Spray 8- or 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Cook potatoes and bell pepper in skillet about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are light brown. Mix eggs, milk and salt; stir into potatoes. Cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until eggs are almost set.
  • 3 Spoon one-fourth of the egg mixture into each tortilla cup. Top with cheese and sour cream. Serve immediately with salsa.

Moms, what are your favorite breakfast for dinner ideas?
