Camping Breakfast Recipe - Mexican Skillet

When camping, we always try to come up with new ideas for cooking over the fire. My sister-n-law had the brilliant breakfast idea to create a copycat version of a Mexican Skillet served at her favorite breakfast restaurant ... and it was delicious!

This recipe does involve a bit of prep time and it takes a while to cook, but the result is worth the extra effort! Plus, it's camping, so you are bound to have time on your hands.

Mexican Skillet Recipe

  • Iron Skillet
  • Spatula

  • Chorizo - 1 lb. (seasoned sausage)
  • Egg/Milk Mixture - 1 dozen mixed with 1 cup milk
  • Jalapenos - to taste
  • Chopped Onions - to taste
  • Frozen Hash Browns - 15 oz.
  • Shredded Cheese - 8 oz. package
  • Sour Cream - to taste
  • Salsa - to taste
  • Oil
The portions of the ingredients above will vary depending on the number of people you are feeding - all of the above mentioned can be eyeballed. 


1. First, cook the chorizo in an oiled iron skillet - remove from the skillet, cover with foil and set aside.

2. Second, cook the egg mixture with the jalapenos in the same oiled iron skillet used above - remove from the skillet, cover with foil and set aside.

3. Cook the chopped onions and add in frozen hash browns. Cook through adding oil as needed - this could be a slower process, so be patient!

4. Add the chorizo and egg mixture to the hash brown mixture and mix in 1 bag of shredded cheese.

5. Serve with sour cream and salsa to taste.

This Mexican Skillet is better than any restaurants' ... in my opinion! This is breakfast at it's finest, and it's made right over the campfire. Add a bit of coffee to the meal, and you will be eating well!

Give it a try next time you are enjoying a weekend of camping - you will thank me!
