On weekends I love to make brunch recipes, so I made this kickin’ Tex-Mex breakfast bake recipe for the family the other day. The kick comes from some chiles and a little cayenne pepper, and you can turn that up a notch or down a notch according to taste.
This Tex-Mex breakfast bake recipe was created in partnership with Simply Orange, but all opinions expressed are my own.
Either way, the perfect accompaniment to this delicious breakfast bake is orange juice, and since Simply Orange launched the new Simply Orange Low Acid, I can have some!
Orange juice is so delicious, but I’m sensitive to the acidity, so I tend to avoid it. But, I can have the new low acid orange juice whenever I want. It’s the next best thing to fresh squeezed!
The reduced acid gives it such a smooth, mild, delicious taste, and just like the other Simply Orange varieties, it’s never sweetened, never concentrated and never frozen. It goes great with this Tex-Mex breakfast bake recipe, but it’s also perfect in a glass on its own.
